“Wife’s request turns into nearly $200,000”
A Michigan man found that being sent to the store by his wife was one of the best things to happen in his life when he bought a lottery ticket and won nearly $200,000.
Preston Maki, 46, said he wouldn’t have bought his ticket from the local store if it hadn’t been for a message from his wife.
“My wife sent me a text message asking me to make a stop for groceries on my way home from work,” Maki said. “I usually don’t play the lottery unless the jackpot is more than $200,000, but I saw it was close and decided to buy five tickets.”
“The next morning, I was in the kitchen and scanned the ticket and saw I was the jackpot winner! Winning is so unimaginable,” he said.
Maki won the $190,736 jackpot. He said he plans to share his winnings with family and make some investments.
