- This past Friday was another Friday the 13th and, once again, a Mega Millions player in Michigan hit it big on the supposedly unlucky day.

According to the Michigan Lottery, a winning ticket of the jackpot was sold at the 7-Eleven on Airport Road in Waterford last Friday. The winning ticket was one of two sold for Friday's drawing, the other ticket was bought in Rhode Island.

The jackpot prize was $43 million and the players will split the pot and each receive $21.5 million before taxes.
