Man Wins $500K on Lottery Scratch Off

A Bay County man who purchased a scratch-off lottery ticket shouted with excitement when he realized he’d won the big prize.

The 69-year-old, who wants to remain anonymous, says he and his wife usually play different games. They bought a few different tickets at the Marathon gas station at 3790 Euclid Avenue in Bay City, and his wife scratched off the coating on the Black Pearls game. They were both shocked to see the 500 thousand dollar prize.

The couple claimed the prize and plans to help family members and save the remainder.
