"I was at the store and bought two $30 tickets and won $100, so I used some of my winnings to purchase more tickets," the player said. "I hardly ever play the Bingo games, but there was one left on the roll, so I decided to purchase it."
The player said he skipped right to scratching off the barcode of the $5 Bingo Blockbuster ticket.
"I scratched the barcode and scanned it right away and got a message to file a claim. I scanned it a few more times and kept getting the same message, so I drove straight to the lottery office in Saginaw to find out what I'd won," the man said. "When the lottery employee told me the ticket was a $300,000 winning ticket, I thought I had heard her wrong at first. It still doesn't feel real as I'm sitting here claiming the prize!"
The winner said his prize money will go toward home renovation projects and bolstering his savings.
