Old wives tale helps player win $250,000!

4.2.12 MM $250K Paul Walker

Paul Walker claims his $250,000 Mega Millions prize at Lottery Headquarters.

There is an old wives tale that says an itching hand means you’ll come into money. For a couple of days, Paul Walker‘s hand would not stop itching. So Walker decided to buy a Mega Millions Lottery ticket. His “itch” proved to be right and he won $250,000!

Walker plans to use his winnings to pay off debts and do some investing to prepare for retirement.

The winning ticket was sold at Next Door Store #42 located at 3520 E. Isabella Rd. in Midland.

Over 95 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to retailers. In fiscal year 2011, the contribution to schools was over $727.3 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed over $16 billion to education in Michigan.
