Clinton Township Resident Wins $1 Million Top Prize In Lottery's "$1,000,000 Gift" Instant Game!

LANSING, January 8, 1999 – A 32-year-old Clinton Township woman recently got the gift of a lifetime when she won the $1 million top prize in the Michigan Lottery’s "$1,000,000 Gift" instant game.

"I had purchased several ‘$1,000,000 Gift’ tickets to give away as Christmas presents and bought a few for myself," she said.  "When I realized that I had actually won a million dollars I started shaking!  I couldn’t believe it!"

The winner, who requested anonymity, purchased the winning ticket at Clark #1657, 322 S. Main St., in Romeo.  Prior to turning the ticket in at Michigan Lottery headquarters, she placed it in a safety deposit box for safe-keeping.

The Clinton Township woman, who has been a regular Lottery player for the past 10 years, already has special plans for her winnings.  She said she plans to start her own family-owned business, take trips to Hawaii and Jamaica, buy a new car for herself, purchase a truck and a boat for her brothers and spoil her nephews.

For other Lottery hopefuls, the winner offered the following advice: "You can’t win if you don’t play!"

"$1,000,000 Gift" is just one of many Michigan Lottery instant tickets available at more than 9,300 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
