Like many Powerball lottery players, Michael Doyle from Belleville in Michigan, USA, routinely stops off to buy a Powerball lottery tickets and Mega Millions lottery tickets after work on a Friday night.
As usual Michael asked the clerk for four Powerball lottery tickets and five Mega Millions. Once given the usa lotto tickets he promptly put them in his wallet.
The following day he went into the same store, and when he opened his wallet, the previous day’s lotto tickets fell out. Looking down at the tickets he got a bit of a shock realising that there were no Powerball tickets!
“That’s when I saw I had Lotto 47 tickets instead of Powerball. So, I asked the clerk at the gas station for four Powerball Easy Picks.”
It’s a darn good thing that he realised he had no Powerball tickets for the draw, because Lady Luck had his numbers for the upcoming draw.
No one managed to win the Powerball jackpot, and it rolled over yet again. Hearing about the rollover, Michael never felt the urge to double check his Powerball tickets, and would check them at a later stage. That was, until he heard about someone from Bellville who was lucky enough to match the 5 winning Powerball lottery numbers to scoop $1 million!
The winning Powerball numbers for the draw, the winning numbers being 06-21-41-52-62. If he’d managed to match the Powerball 26 then he’d have won the $70.5m jackpot.
“I immediately checked my tickets and have been happy and nervous ever since I realized I was the winner because $1 million is so much money!”
Michael told lottery officials that he’s absolutely delighted with his win and that he’s grateful that the lottery tickets fell out his wallet and he noticed that he had the wrong tickets. He came so close to not winning at all.
The lucky Powerball winner said that he wants to buy a new car with his Powerball winnings, and save the rest for his retirement. “For all of the times we’ve said: ‘We wish we could,’ but didn’t have the money, now we can,” Doyle said.
