A detroit-area man who accidentally bought an extra lottery ticket has won two $1 million jackpots.

(U.S.) A man in Detroit accidentally bought an extra lottery ticket and won the first prize of 2 sets of 1 million US dollars each.

Samir Mazahem, 56, of Dearborn Heights said he was saving numbers on a lottery app after buying a $2 ticket for the Mega Millions game. He then realized that he had purchased a second ticket with the same numbers.

Samir, 56, lives in Dearborn Heights. Mazaheim said that he spent $2 on the “Super Millions Lotto” app and bought one lottery ticket. After storing the number, he found that he had actually bought two lottery tickets with the same number.

“I was a little bummed but didn’t think much about it,” Mazahem said. Until he recently logged onto the app and found he had two $1 million winners.

Mazaheim said, “I was a little upset, but didn’t think too much.” It wasn’t until recently that he logged into the app that he found out that he had won two grand prizes each worth $1 million.
