(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - How would like to be carrying a lottery ticket worth $80 million in your wallet? Sounds pretty nice, right? What if you had no idea that ticket was a winner?
That was the case for a Detroit-area man. Dick Zelasko of Troy bought the Mega Millions ticket in early July, occasionally scanned it at stores that sell lottery tickets.
