“I saw there were two top prizes remaining on the Worth Millions game, so I thought I had good odds,” said the 26-year-old player. “I gave the ticket to my friend to check when he went to the store. When I got a call from him telling me I won $4 million, I freaked out! I had to pinch myself because I couldn’t believe it was real.”Michigan Lottery Connect, July 15, 2021
