Man Gets Lottery Ticket As Birthday Gift, Wins $1 Million Prize

Winning the lottery is great, but winning the lottery after playing for the first time is that much better. That's exactly what happened to a man after receiving a lottery ticket for his birthday.

Daniel Schumann had never spared a second thought for the lottery. That was until his wife bought him a single ticket from a local 7-Eleven for his birthday.

Wanting to do something a little different for his birthday, his wife bought a single lottery ticket to surprise him. She never thought that it would win a prize, let alone a $1 million jackpot.

“It was shocking, this isn’t what we expected!’” Schumann told lottery officials after he saw that his numbers matched the winning numbers. "I had to check a few times before I believed it."

He visited the store where the ticket was bought to process his win, the store will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. His ticket was one of three that had won $1 million prizes in this particular draw.

According the lottery officials Daniel has 'no immediate plans' for his winnings and is uncertain if he will play the lottery again. One thing is for certain, he won't be forgetting his 41 million birthday anytime soon!
