Man wins $21 million on Friday the 13th playing Michigan Lottery
WATERFORD, Mich. (WXYZ) – Who says Friday the 13th is unfortunate? For one Michigan guy, the day shrouded in superstition gave him fairly the deal with.
Kevin Blake, 54, of Waterford gained part of the $42 million Mega Millions jackpot, in keeping with a information unlock from the Michigan Lottery.
Blake reportedly purchased the price ticket that very same day at a 7-Eleven on Airport Road. The successful numbers had been 02-07-18-26-31, Mega Ball: 12.
“I’ve played the same numbers for years, it didn’t even occur to me that it was Friday the 13th,” mentioned Blake in a information unlock. “For just about every Mega Millions drawing for as long as I can remember, I’ve gone to the same 7-Eleven and bought $5 in Mega Millions tickets. I always play some family birthdays and then I get a couple of Easy Picks.”
Blake and his spouse opted to obtain the $21 million as one lump sum, in keeping with the Michigan Lottery.
“We’re both planning to continue working and will use this to pay off bills and then invest the remainder for our retirement. It’s great to know that the stress of worrying about our financial future is over.”
