A man who used his last four quarters to buy a lottery ticket at a Macomb County, Michigan, market won a $1.3 million Classic Lotto 47 jackpot, according to the Michigan Lottery.

The winner, whose name, age and hometown weren't released, is an Army veteran whose has been disabled since 2009 with a back injury, lottery officials said in a press release. The jackpot came at just the right time to help the man deal with undisclosed family issues and to help his four children, the press release said.

"This is a direct blessing from God," :happy: he was quoted as saying in the press release. "Now everybody will be okay."

The man bought the ticket at Towns Mart, at 13200 32 Mile Road, in Washington Township, near Romeo.

A day after buying the ticket, the man returned to the store to check the numbers.

"I got weak in the knees while I was standing at the counter, after he (the retailer) told me I had matched all six numbers," the winner said in the press release.

That's it! I'm fully convinced that I should do the same come Wednesday.

Oh wait, we don't have quarters here... will it work on other denominations? :unsure:

Rather a disabled vet get it than some bozo who's going to snort it up their nose or shoot it in their arm.

While I am inclined to agree with your sentiment, for all we know, this disabled vet could develop a coke habit. I too hope he uses his money wisely, as plenty before him have squandered it.

Then along comes the IRS, who promptly steal half of it for taxes.
