The lucky winner plans to “slightly spoil” his wife and four children with his fortune, which he says was once just a fantasy. He then plans on putting most of his new-found wealth into savings to help him successfully achieve an earlier retirement.
The winning ticket was sold by 7-Eleven 098H located at 10400 S Clare Ave. in Clare.
