Campagna’s hunch proved correct and his Powerball ticket netted him a cool $1 million. “When the price of Powerball increased to $2 in January, I thought about boycotting it; but in this case the extra dollar was worth it,” said Campagna.
Campagna will use the money to pay off his mortgage and maybe finish his basement, but he says the money will not cause him to change his lifestyle. He will continue to be active in outdoor pursuits and may do some traveling. ”
The winning ticket was sold by Meijer #172 located at 3883 E. Grand River Ave. in Howell.
