A Michigan man said he made a mistake while buying his lottery ticket that turned a $1 million jackpot into a $2 million payday

A Michigan man said he made a mistake while buying his lottery ticket that turned a $1 million jackpot into a $2 million payday, UPI reports.

Samir Mazahem, 56, of Dearborn Heights, told Michigan Lottery officials he accidentally bought two identical tickets for the June 9 Mega Millions drawing using the lottery’s website.

“I went online and bought a ticket using numbers that are family birthdays,” Mazahem said. “I forgot to save the numbers as favorites in the app, so I went back in and set them up as favorites so I could easily play them in the future.”

He said repeating the process had an unforeseen side effect.

“What I didn’t realize, is that meant I would be buying a second ticket with the same numbers. Once I figured out I had bought two tickets with identical numbers, I was a little bummed but didn’t think much about it,” he said.
