A Holland man was in disbelief when he got a notification from the Michigan Lottery informing him that he won a $100,000 prize in the $300,000,000 Diamond Riches Second Chance drawing.
Darwyn Thomas, 43, won $100,000 after he 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,” said Thomas. “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!”
The player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills and then save the remainder.
Each non-winning $300,000,000 Diamond Riches ticket is eligible for a second chance to win a prize ranging from $500 up to $100,000. Players can enter by scanning their non-winning tickets on the Michigan Lottery mobile app ticket scanner by Nov. 13, 2022. Nine more second chance drawings will be conducted. Each drawing will award:
- One winner of $100,000
- Five winners of $10,000
- Twenty winners of $1,000
- Sixty winners of $500
