A man sits alone in a dark, closed bathroom quietly scratching a Lotto scratch card produced by the Michigan lottery. He must hide because of his girlfriend, as he promised that he would no longer waste money on scratch cards and gambling in general. However, he ignored this ban from his beloved and was scratching coupons like crazy. Suddenly, the digits that could change his life appeared before his eyes. Ironically, the act of disobedience turned out to be a salvation for him. He won a million dollars. At that moment, he thought he was going to have a heart attack because he was in such shock. He won the money because he decided to risk it again, putting his relationship on the line.
This is the story of a man from Livonia in the United States who wanted to remain anonymous, and the organizer allowed his request, although it is common in the United States to show the faces of winners.

However, theoretically, because he would get a million dollars if he decided to make long-term payments every month. Lotteries in the US have different withdrawal methods, with immediate cash-out being worthless. That's why he only got $634,517.
Now he is planning a European holiday and is laughing that perhaps next time his partner will not be so skeptical about scratch cards and gambling. However, until that time, he has not won anything significant, only small amounts from scratch cards. He bought some tickets in the past and won $5 two times.
