Man dreams of winning lottery, wins $1M on Michigan scratch off the next day
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (FOX2) - A Wayne County man says he was always confident that he would win the lottery one day and told his wife as much but she didn't believe him. Then he had a dream about winning it and it became true!
The anonymous winner claimed a $1 million prize on a $20 scratch-off ticket. He bought his lucky ticket at the Red Caboose Wine Shoppe on Holbrook Street in Hamtramck the day after he had a dream about winning the lottery.
"I had a dream one night that I won a large lottery prize. I didn’t think much of it and went to the store the next day to buy some tickets," he said.
He immediately matched a winning number but thought he'd won $100 - not a bad return on a $20 investment. But then he kept scratching under the winning number.

"When I got in my car, I started scratching them. I saw I matched the number ‘04’ right away and thought I’d probably won $100. When I revealed the ‘$1MIL’ symbol, I thought I was still dreaming. I called my wife immediately to tell her the good news," he said.
The 32-year-old man said he told his wife that he always believed that he would win big but she never believed me.
