(WXYZ) — A man from Tuscola County won $1 million in lottery money.

"My wife and I ate dinner in Millington and as we were leaving I noticed I needed to get gas," said Randy Richardson, of Millington. "I told my wife I saw gas earlier in the day for 22 cents cheaper in Clio, so that's where we went."

He bought the winning Mega Millions ticket when he stopped for gas at the Beacon and Bridge Market in Clio.

"I checked my ticket Saturday afternoon and saw I matched five numbers," said Richardson. "I told my wife: 'You won't believe this, but we got five white balls and won $1 million!'"

With his winnings, 56-year-old Richardson plans to help family members, buy a new Harley and save for his retirement later this year.

"I think I'll keep searching for the cheapest gas I can find. I figure this time I came out about $1,000,004 ahead," Richardson joked.
