LANSING, October 5, 1998 – Krishna Yeluri of Bloomfield Hills is now $100,000 richer after winning the top prize in the Michigan Lottery’s Cash 5 game!

Yeluri, 44, matched all five numbers – 13, 25, 33, 36 and 37 – in the September 17 drawing.  The winning Cash 5 "easy pick" ticket was purchased at H & S Petro Inc., 3585 Dix Hwy., in Lincoln Park.
