Lotto 47 with EZMatchWith a Lotto 47 jackpot of $10.7 million up for grabs Wednesday night, fireworks could come early for a Michigan Lottery player.

If a lucky player wins the $10.7 million Lotto 47 jackpot, it would be the largest Lotto 47 jackpot won this year, and the biggest won since 2013. Players have taken notice of the steadily growing jackpot. More than 15,700 winning tickets, including 17 $2,500 winners were sold for Saturday night’s drawing.

In January, the Lotto 47 jackpot was won twice, with the big wins coming just a week apart.

On Jan. 17, one ticket matched the six Lotto 47 numbers drawn – 04-06-16-26-33-36 – to win a $3.5 million jackpot. The winning ticket was bought at the Pellston General Store, located at 45 North U.S. 31 in Pellston. One week later, a lucky player matched the six Lotto 47 numbers drawn Jan. 24 – 02-04-14-17-27-30 – to win a $1 million jackpot. That ticket was bought at the E&A Pit Stop, located at 5586 East Apple Avenue in Muskegon.

The winner of the $3.5 million Lotto 47 jackpot from Jan. 17 has yet to come forward. The winning ticket holder should contact the Michigan Lottery Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to schedule an appointment to collect the big prize. The prize must be claimed at the Lottery’s headquarters in Lansing. Tickets for Lotto 47 are valid for one year from the drawing date.

Each Lotto 47 play is only $1. Players select six numbers from one to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot starting at $1 million and that grows until someone wins it. For an additional $1 per game, players may add EZMatch to their ticket for a chance to win up to $500 instantly.

Las Vegas Woman Wins $25,000 a Year for Life While Vacationing in Michigan

06.22.15 Lucky For Life 06.18.15 Drawing $25,000 a Year for Life Patricia Kraydich Clark County NevadaIt took a visit to Michigan for a Las Vegas woman to finally win big. Patricia Kraydich traveled to Michigan to visit newborn twin grandchildren and will head home with plenty of memories and a big stack of cash after winning $25,000 a year for life playing Lucky For Life.

Kraydich matched the five white balls drawn on June 18 – 04-12-24-42-43 – to win the $25,000 a year for life prize. She bought her winning ticket at the 7-Eleven, located at 16761 21 Mile Road in Macomb.

A Michigan native, Kraydich was visiting her daughter and her recently born babies.

“We were headed home and stopped at the 7-Eleven so I could get some money from the ATM and buy a couple of Lottery instant tickets,” said Kraydich. “After buying the instant tickets, I had $5 left and asked the clerk what games were being drawn that day. She recommended Lucky For Life, so I bought two easy picks.”

After spending an evening with family, the Lucky For Life tickets were all but forgotten.

“As I was getting ready for bed, I saw the ticket on the dresser out of the corner of my eye so I checked it on my phone,” said Kraydich. “I was stunned to see I had matched four numbers and ran to tell my daughter.

“She didn’t believe me and wanted to see the ticket for herself. That’s when we realized I had actually matched five numbers to win $25,000 a year for life!”

06.22.15 Lucky For Life 06.18.15 Drawing $25,000 a Year for Life Patricia Kraydich Clark County NevadaKraydich called her husband to share the good news and spent the night celebrating with her daughter. For safekeeping, she taped the winning ticket underneath a closet shelf until she made the trip to Lottery headquarters to claim her big prize on Monday.

Kraydich choose to receive her prize as a one-time lump sum cash payment of $390,000. She could have chosen payments of $25,000 annually for 20 years or for life, whichever is greater.

“This is such a life changing thing for me and my husband, it’s like winning a house” said Kraydich. “We work so hard to make ends meet, and this money is going to go a long way in helping to ease the financial pressure we feel every day.”

In addition to purchasing a home, Kraydich and her husband plan to make a donation to the Ronald McDonald House in Ann Arbor.

Michigan players have won nearly $5.6 million so far playing Lucky For Life, including four $25,000 a year for life winners, and 29 $5,000 winners. Each Lucky For Life drawing is producing more than 15,000 winners on average in Michigan.

For just $2 per play, Lucky For Life gives Lottery players a chance to win prizes ranging from $3 to a lifetime of cash. To win the game’s top prize of $1,000 a day for life, players must match all five winning numbers ranging from 1 to 48, plus one Lucky Ball ranging from 1 to 18. Players who match all five winning numbers, but not the Lucky Ball, will win $25,000 a year for life. Lucky For Life drawings take place every Monday and Thursday at 10:35 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at Lottery retailers across the state.
