Livingston County resident wins $100,000 in the $300,000,000 Diamond Riches Second Chance Game of the Michigan Lottery.

After winning a $100,000 prize while playing a game, a guy from Livingston County is one step closer to retiring.

Diamond Riches Second Chance, a $300,000,000 lottery game from the Michigan Lottery.

The lucky player, who wished to remain unidentified, was chosen at random on October 12 and received $100,000 as a result.

By scanning non-winning $300,000,000 Diamond Riches tickets on the Michigan Lottery app, he accrued entries into the giveaway.

The 61-year-old player claimed, "While I was at work, I received an email from the Lottery notifying me that I'd won a $100,000 second chance prize.

I showed some of my coworkers the email because I was a little sceptic and believed it was probably a scam email to get their opinions.

When one of my coworkers claimed to have won a $500 reward in the drawing and we compared emails, I knew it was legitimate. I was totally shocked!

To collect the substantial win, the player recently went to Lottery headquarters. His gains will be set aside for retirement.
