That Moment You win a Massive Scratchcard Prize

When you go into shops or go to an online lottery site, it’s not all about numbers. There are plenty of scratchcards available for you to play. Just imagine if one of them turned you into a millionaire.

Just how do people feel when such an amazing thing like that takes place? A 76-year-old man from Macomb County in Michigan, USA, thought his $4 million win was all a dream, but it wasn’t. He’d changed his routine and spent $30 on a $150 Million Cash Explosion scratchcard.

For some reason the player (who has opted to remain anonymous) scratched off his card just before going to bed. He knew some win had been achieved but then the $4 million amount was revealed. “Wait a minute. This can’t be,” was his immediate reaction.

He wasn’t sure if what he was seeing was real but I was. Then he just went to bed and somehow got some sleep. When he woke up in the morning he was sure that his big scratchcard win has been a dream. He checked his scratchcard again and he really had won $4 million.

The 76-year-old accepted his win as a one-off payment of around $2.5 million. “I really enjoy helping people, so all I can think about is how many people I’ll be able help with this money. It is such a surreal feeling,” the delighted winner said.

How do you feel when discovering a big win? Well, another player in Michigan says she nearly fainted. Not surprising really as the woman from Marquette County had just won $2 million playing the $2,000,000 Lucky 7’s scratchcard.

Another problem that winners have is convincing others that they have actually won a massive prize. That was the case here with her niece not believing a word of her great win. The 70-year-old had to go and see her with the $2 million winning ticket in her purse, something she was never going to let hold of.

She now plans to buy a new television and save the rest after accepting a $1.2 million payment. Hopefully it’s a rather expensive television that she purchases.

Checking your tickets is an important task. How many players of lotteries such as EuroMillions don’t check the millionaire code? Scratchcards can sometimes be a bit confusing and it nearly cost a man from Grand Rapids, Michigan a $500,000 win.

The 74-year-old (boy do elderly people love playing scratchcards in Michigan?) scratched his ticket off and was convinced it was a loser. Something made him check it again and then the massive win was revealed. “This can’t be. This kind of luck never happens to me,” he said. Now how many winners say that! He now wants to pay off his debts and buy a new home.

Oh and there was also the recent Michigan player who scratched off his ticket while his car was being filled with gas. So shocked was he at his $1 million win, he drove off without realizing his car was still attached to the gas pump. No damage caused but at least he’d have been able to pay for any that may have been caused.
