(WWJ) A Macomb County man says he felt a rush of emotions after winning a $1 million Mega Millions prize.

“When we looked at the fifth number and saw it matched, I felt a rush of emotions: shock, happiness, excitement, anxiousness. Neither of us could believe we won $1 million and we couldn’t stop smiling.”

Ricardi, who recently recently visited Lottery headquarters with this wife Karen to claim the big prize, said he plans to set his winnings aside for retirement.

Mega Millions drawings take place each Tuesday and Friday evening. Each Mega Millions play is only $2. For an additional $1 per play, players have the opportunity to add a “Megaplier” that can multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to five times.

Mega Millions tickets for may be purchased online at and at the Lottery’s 10,500 retailers around the state until 10:45 p.m. the day of the drawing.

Remember: About 97 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to vendors and retailers.
