Michigan woman has to give her mother credit for winning the jackpot-winning lottery.
The mother of the 37-year old woman chose to remain anonymous and was playing Keno at a Lincoln Park cafe. The mother suggested to her daughter that she buy a Lucky 7s Fast Cash ticket and pointed out that the prize was more than $1.6million.
According to the Michigan Lottery, the woman bought some tickets after her mother advised. The woman won “few dollars” and decided to purchase another ticket with her earnings.
The woman said that she won the jackpot when “that was it” to the Michigan Lottery. I called the bar operator and informed him that I had won the jackpot. He asked me to scan the ticket for my benefit.
She claimed that she was confirmed by the bar owner that she had won $1.6 million and she still can’t believe it. It all seemed more real when she went to Lansing’s lottery headquarters to claim her prize.
According to the Michigan Lottery the woman intends to use the prize to pay down her student loans, buy a home and take her child to Disney World. She said that she also wants to save the rest.
Fast Cash, a game that is offered in Michigan, can be bought from lottery retailers or terminals. Prices for tickets can vary from $2 to $20 per play.
To win a Lucky 7s prize, a player must match any scratch-off number with any winning numbers.
The Michigan Lottery states that the chances of winning the Lucky 7s jackpot are about 1 in 400,000. Players won more than $64,000,000 in prizes by playing Fast Cash games in 2020.
Another lucky Virginian was surprised to win the holiday lottery jackpot.
Brian Donohue (a student of mathematics at the University of Virginia) was the winner of $1,000,000 after the ticket his mother put in his Christmas stocking met the jackpot numbers.
Donohue was born to Donohue and she purchased the winning ticket at a local Oakton supermarket on December 22. She didn’t know that her son would win the Virginia Lottery Bank a Million game.
