Lottery winner gets surprise at store

Saturday, February 16, 2008

BAD AXE, Mich. -- Donald Ertman got a little agitated when he found out he'd have to make the 150-mile trip to Lansing to collect his lottery winnings. All that for $150, he complained.

Then the owner of the store that sold Ertman the $1 Mega Millions ticket set him straight: It was worth not $150, but a cool quarter of a million.

"I didn't believe him -- not at first," Ertman told The Bay City Times.

He must have written down the numbers wrong when he saw them on TV, he said.
