LANSING, Mich. — Cha-ching! A Michigan couple just won millions playing the lottery, and they need it.
The Chippewas traveled from Suttons Bay to Lansing on Wednesday to claim their winnings, MLive reported.
"With seven children and 21 grandchildren, I've always said that I might not have the most money, but I'm rich with family," Phillip Chippewa said, according to MLive.
“Now, I have all the money I’ll ever need and can help my family for generations. That means everything to me,” he said.
The couple bought their Easy Pick ticket from a party store in Suttons Bay and matched all five white numbers and the Powerball – 1-9-22-36-38 and 22 – in the drawing held Sept. 21.
"It's hard to get used to even the thought of it. People are still picking on me. I have a hard time spending $100," Dawn Chippewa said, according to MLive.
