WWII Veteran Wins $300,000 With Michigan Lottery for 94th birthday

WWII Veteran Wins $300,000 With Michigan Lottery for 94th birthday

Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Ervin Smolinski, 94, has just received the best birthday gift ever after receiving a winning lottery ticket worth $300,000 from his daughter! Smolinski, a World War II veteran explained how this was part of an inside joke within his family, as every month he'd purchase some lottery tickets and give them as presents to relatives who had birthdays that month. This became a tradition for his family, with everyone giving him chocolate and scratch-offs for his own birthday as well. The veteran had four Double Bonus Cashword tickets with the Michigan Lottery, with the very first he scratched off being the big winner! "I've seen a lot in my life, and I don't get worked up easily. I think my son-in-law was more worked up than I was" he exclaimed. Speaking about plans for the money, he explained that the $300,000 won't change much of his day-to-day life as he is someone who always shops in the sales and is careful with his money, however it will remove the stress of having to worry about money in general.
