Michigan Mega Millions Winner Wins Lottery Prize Twice?
Darnell Adams of Detroit, Michigan, has some interesting news to tell. You see, Adams won the same Mega Millions prize twice! Six Michigan lottery winners matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball number, for the March 30th drawing. Out of those six Mega Millions winners, Darnell Adams won twice! The second-tier lottery prize normally pays out $250,000, but since Adams played the same numbers twice, and won $250,000 on each slip, his total prize winnings were $500,000!
How in the world could he manage two winning Mega Millions tickets in the same drawing? Michigan Mega Millions winner Darnell Adams was feeling a little sleepy while driving home after he already purchased his Mega Millions ticket. Then he remembered he still had a slip with more Mega Millions numbers on it that he hadn't played yet.
Adams decided he needed to stop and take a break and wake up and figured he may as well play the other slip. What he didn't realize was that along with the new numbers, he just played the same numbers he had previously played. When all was said and done, Adams had just won half a million dollarsÂ—before taxes, of course! What a stroke of luck!
The four remaining March 30th Michigan Mega Millions winners are Suk Fong Li of Troy; Paul Turner of Howell; Jacob Lemus of Lincoln Park; and Ann Campbell of Warren.
