The $500 a Week for Life Lottery officials are here to share how a player’s good day turned out to be the best day of his life. The lottery officials are very pleased to announce that they helped another player shape his life and fulfill his desires.
The lottery officials have revealed that the lucky winner is a player from Macomb County who was for a special day but not for such large prize money. The player had no idea that he would end up winning huge prize money playing the $500 a Week for Life.
According to the player, playing the $500 a Week for Life game was not even on his agenda for the day. He had never played any lottery game so he was completely clueless when he purchased the ticket.
The player informed the officials that he never tried any lottery game in his life and it was always going to remain the same. He just went off to do some grocery and just when he was about to come back home, he thought of purchasing something with the change he had left.
That is when he made it back to the market where he had purchased groceries from and wanted to get something to eat. However, the cashier there asked him to try the game and see if something comes out of it. According to the player, he did it for the cashier as he knows him for a while and did not want to turn down his suggestion.
The player stated that the cashier always wanted him to play but he never did, so this time, he felt bad and wanted to make up for it. Therefore, he went for the $500 a Week for Life game and decided to test his patience and luck.
The player went ahead and scratched the ticket the moment he got his hands on it. Once he was done scratching the entire ticket, he asked the cashier to help him out and see if he had won anything or not.
The moment cashier saw the ticket, his eyes were lit and he started laughing. He told him that he had won prize money worth $500 a Week for Life. This meant that the player was entitled to receive $500 a week for up to 20 years.
When the player went to collect the prize money for the game, he was provided with three options. The first option was to receive $500 a week for 20 years, the second option was to receive $26,000 annually, or receive $553,000 as a one-time lump sum.
The player went with the last option and took home $553,000 excluding taxes. The player had reportedly purchased his ticket from Mario’s Corner Market. It is located at 49011 Romeo Plank Road, Macomb.
