Muskegon County Man Wins $ 1 Million Lottery Jackpot, “It Can’t Be Real”
LANSING, MI – A man from Muskegon County was so happy he shouted when he won a $ 1 million jackpot playing the Michigan Lottery 50X the Cash instant game.
“When I scratched the ticket and saw it was a million dollar winner, I shouted, ‘This can’t be real!’” Said the 45-year-old player who has chosen to remain anonymous. “You dream of winning, but seeing that million dollar dream come true is something else. “
He bought his winning ticket at the Wesco gas station, located at 1025 East Pontaluna Road in Spring Lake. He recently visited the Michigan Lottery headquarters to claim his prize. The winner elected to receive their prize as a one-time lump sum payment of $ 634,000 rather than the annuity.
With his earnings, he plans to invest in his business.
The last Michigan player to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot was Cristy Davis of Waterford who won $ 70 million playing Powerball in February. With her earnings, Davis said she plans to buy a new home and a new car.
And while she was the lucky winner, it makes sense for players to check their tickets immediately, as a million dollar winner sold to Hartland last year has not been claimed. . The ticket was purchased at Hartland Speedway, but the winner never showed up to claim the prize. Instead, the money went to the State Educational Assistance Fund.
