Darwyn Thomas simply couldn’t believe it.
The 43-year-old Holland man won $100,000 in the Michigan Lottery Diamond Riches Second Chance drawing.
According to Michigan Lottery, Thomas was selected in a random drawing that took place on July 21. He earned entries into the giveaway by scanning his non-winning $300,000,000 Diamond Riches tickets on the Michigan Lottery app.
“I scanned several non-winning $300,000,000 Diamond Riches tickets into the second chance promotion hoping to win a big prize,” Thomas told Michigan Lottery. “When I got a notification from the Lottery telling me I’d won the $100,000 top prize, I was in disbelief. It was an amazing feeling!”
Thomas recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills and then save the remainder, according to Michigan Lottery
