"I purchased four Bingo tickets while I was at the store and won $50 on them, so I used my winnings to purchase a few more," he said. "I scratched the ticket and looked it over, but I wasn’t sure how much I’d won. When I called the Lottery office, and they told me my ticket was a $300,000 winner, I started cheering! I couldn’t contain my excitement."

The man plans to take a trip to northern Michigan then save the rest of his winnings.
