A man from suburban Detroit received quite a shock when he won 2 million dollars off a $20 lotto scratcher. While winning on a lottery ticket is always shocking, the most surprising part about this ticket was that it wasn't what he had initially asked for.

The man from Michigan stopped at a gas station in Eastpointe to put some air in his tire. He needed change in order to have coins for the machine so naturally, he asked for a $10 Lucky 7's scratch-off lotto ticket.

The clerk happily obliged to the man's request however instead of handing him a $10 ticket he handed him the $20 version. They both noticed but when the clerk asked if he wanted to exchange the ticket for its cheaper brother, something was telling the man to hold onto it.

In a statement to the Lottery the man said:

The clerk handed me the $20 ticket by mistake. He offered to exchange it for me but something told me to keep it. I am sure glad I did!

The name of the Michigan man was not released, but it was reported that he decided to take a lump sum of around $1.3 million rather than have the $2 million paid out over the coming years. Lucky guy!
