Where Did A Michigan Lottery Winner Find Out They Had Won?
It seems that you can see and find out a lot of things on Facebook.
What someone is eating, what someone ate, birthdays, anniversaries, professions of undying love and well, professions of undying hatred, too. Yep, just about everything and well...more.
But did you ever think that you would find out that you were a big lottery winner on Facebook? Yep, that happens, too.
According to the press release from the Michigan Lottery, this is what happened:
LANSING, Mich., Dec. 4, 2019 - A Grand Rapids woman realized she'd won a $5 million Lotto 47 jackpot prize by scrolling through Facebook the night after the drawing.
The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched all six Lotto 47 numbers drawn Nov. 20: 17-18-24-26-35-40. She bought the winning ticket at the D & W Fresh Market located at 6425 28th Street Southeast in Grand Rapids.
"I usually only buy Lotto 47 tickets when the jackpot gets over $10 million," said the player. "When I was at the store, I saw the jackpot was only at $5 million, but I decided to get a ticket anyway.
"The night after the drawing, I was scrolling through Facebook when I saw a news station had posted that someone in Kent County won the big jackpot," the player said. "I started reading the article and realized it was won at the same store where I'd purchased my ticket. I quickly pulled my ticket out to check my numbers and realized I was the big winner! I instantly felt numb."
