The last person to claim a Mega Millions prize is a man from Michigan who won one million dollars. David Klemish, 53, from Grand Ledge, Michigan, told lottery officials he purchased his winning ticket at the Shell gas station on East Saginaw Highway in Grand Ledge. He had stopped at the gas station the day before and decided to buy two more tickets the second day at the gas station.

"I stopped at the Shell station on Thursday night to buy my normal two Mega Millions tickets," said Klemish. "On Friday morning I was back at the Shell, and thought: 'What the heck? I'll buy two more.'

Klemish saw a post on the Grand Ledge community Facebook page the following day that someone had purchased the winning ticket at the same Shell gas station and he told lottery officials he immediately checked his tickets

"I looked at my ticket from Thursday and it wasn't a winner, but as soon as I looked at the ticket from Friday, I saw I matched five numbers," he told lottery officials. "I called for my wife to come double check what I was seeing. Neither of us could believe our eyes!"

The 53-year-old told lottery officials he plans to pay off some bills and take his wife on a special 25th anniversary trip with his winnings.
