BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WXYZ) — A lucky Battle Creek man won a $100,000 Super Raffle Prize.

The 38-year-old player bought his winning ticket at the Harper Creek Shell in Battle Creek.

"I wanted to try my luck at the Super Raffle game, so my wife and I stopped to get a ticket one night," said the player. "The day after the drawing I was checking my raffle numbers online at work. When I realized I was one of the $100,000 winners, I just sat there in awe. I still don't know what to think about it, it doesn't seem real."
