Man dives into dumpster to find his winning $4.8 million lottery ticket


MUNGER, Mich. (CIRCA via WSMH) — Sometimes dumpster diving pays off, especially when $4.82 million is on the line.

That’s what happened to one lucky lottery player.

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, was one of two winners of the Lotto 47 jackpot on Oct. 10. He matched all six Lotto 47 numbers drawn: 05-12-24-31-35-42. Each winner won $4.82 million.

The player bought his winning ticket at a B&D Mini Mart in Munger, Michigan.

“I have been playing the same numbers on Lotto 47 for more than two years,” the player said. “I always use the same playslip to buy my tickets. In fact, a few months ago I accidentally threw it away and had to climb in a dumpster to get it back. I am so lucky that I found it!
