Cadillac Woman Wins $100,000 In Cash 5 Drawing!

LANSING, December 4, 1998 –  A Cadillac woman is now $100,000 richer after winning the top prize in the Michigan Lottery’s Cash 5 game!

The 22-year-old winner, who requested anonymity, collected the game’s $100,000 top prize by matching all five numbers in the October 23 drawing – 3, 4, 17, 35 and 37.  The winning "easy pick" ticket was purchased at People’s Choice Market #91, 465 W. Sanilac Ave., in Sandusky.

"My mom saw the winning numbers in the newspaper," she said.  "We then double-checked them on the Michigan Lottery Web site.  I was very excited that I had won!"

Prior to collecting her prize at Lottery headquarters in Lansing, the Western Michigan University student hid the winning ticket in a safe deposit box.  She said she doesn’t have any special plans for the money yet –  she is still thinking about what to do with it.

The winner offered the following advice to other Lottery hopefuls: "You never think you are going to win, but you just have to keep trying!"

Cash 5 drawings are conducted every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  Odds to win the $100,000 prize are one in 575,757.  Tickets are available at more than 6,400 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
