“I was checking my tickets online Wednesday morning, and out of the corner of my eye I saw the $3 million winner,” said Smith. “I called my wife right away and it took me 10 minutes to convince her we’d won $3 million.

“She was still skeptical, so she had me send her a screenshot and then Googled the numbers herself. We were both stunned. We’re still in shock.”

Smith’s $3 million prize is the largest ever won with a ticket bought at Two players have won $1 million. In February 2015, Pam Rawson, of Grand Junction won $1 million playing the Diamond Payout instant game. In July 2016, Tammy Weadock, of Onsted, won a $1 million Powerball prize.

Smith visited Michigan Lottery headquarters on Friday to claim the big prize. He plans to complete some home improvements, take his family on a vacation, and then save the remainder for retirement.

“Winning takes so much pressure off with our retirement coming up in a few years. We couldn’t be more thankful and humble,” Smith said.
