WAYNE COUNTY, Mich. (WXYZ) — A 59-year-old Wayne County man won a $1.3 million lottery jackpot playing the Doubler Wild Time Progressive Fast Cash game.

The winning ticket was bought at the Vreeland Market located at Allen Road in Woodhaven.

"I usually play Club Keno, but my nephew was playing Fast Cash and I decided to give it a try," said the player. "When we looked over the ticket, my nephew started screaming that I'd won. It's so hard to believe that I really hit the jackpot!

"I went home and told my wife I was sending her on a trip, and she just laughed because she thought I was joking. Then I showed her the ticket and told her she could take the trip she'd been hoping to go on with our church. She was speechless."

In addition to paying for his wife's trip, he also plans to share his winnings with his family and then invest the remainder in his retirement account.
