Dumped lottery ticket wins $3 million

A homeless Michigan man has won $3 million on the state lotto but had to retrieve his winning ticket from the bin to claim the prize!

Lotto 47The winner who has chosen to remain anonymous realised his $1 ticket was a winner after his usual 5, 12, 24, 31, 35, and 42 numbers came up in the October Lotto 47 drawing.

However, he was unable to claim it until he had retrieved it from the bin after accidentally throwing it away.

"As soon as I saw they matched, I started shaking and haven't stopped since," he said.

"It's been a rough couple of years for me. An injury caused me to go on disability and I haven't been able to find any work. Winning this prize has turned my life around in an instant. It means I can finally get some medical procedures that I couldn't have afforded before. This will undoubtedly improve my quality of life."

Each Lotto 47 draw requires you to select six numbers from one to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot starting at $1 million and it grows until someone wins it.
