In a release from the Lottery, Lowery said "When the wheel stopped on $300,000 all I could think was: 'Man, freedom! It feels great to win so much money and know I can buy a house and share my good fortune with my family!"

What makes Lowery's good fortune more special, it came from a losing ticket. He was selected to participate in the show after entering the losing ticket at The Lottery says "each player selected will spin The Big Spin wheel and have a chance to win up to $2 million. All the players who spin The Big Spin wheel are guaranteed to win at least $100,000."

In case you're wondering, that is former Detroit Piston and Chicago Bull forward John Salley hosting the show.
