A Michigan teen who has played the lottery four times and never lost is reaping his greatest prize yet: half a million dollars.
The 19-year-old from Lansing, who has asked to remain anonymous, told state lottery officials the latest victory comes as a huge "relief" for him.
"I just graduated from high school and started going to college," he said. "I'm pre-med and going to be a doctor, so this will really help with my expenses."
The teen has bought four scratch-off tickets in his life, he said. Each one has been a winner.
"Winning won't change me, but it will make things easier while I go to school," he added.
