If you want someone to accompany you on your next trip to the store, Mark Clark may be your man. Make sure he has his lucky coin.
Clark, of South Rockwood in Monroe County, scratched a ticket with a coin that was given to him by his late father about 10 years ago. Clark won a different $4 million instant game in 2017.
“You don’t think you’ll win millions once, and you definitely never think it would happen twice,” Clark, 50, said in a statement released by the Michigan Lottery. “It’s hard to put into words exactly what I am feeling. I can’t help but think maybe that lucky coin helped me win this.”
Clark chose a lump sum of $2.5 million instead of taking $4 million in payments over time.
“I’ve had a lot of ups and a lot of downs in my life, but everything is pretty amazing right now,” Clark said.
