LANSING, May 6, 1999 – A Howell woman was happy as a lark after winning the $100,000 top prize in the Michigan Lottery’s Cash 5 game!
The lucky lady, who requested anonymity, matched all five numbers in the May 3 drawing – 1, 4, 25, 31 and 39. The winning "easy pick" ticket was purchased at New Hudson Food Market, 56320 Grand River Ave., in New Hudson.
"I watched the drawing on television," she said. "I thought maybe I had written the numbers down wrong, so I decided to double-check my ticket at the Lottery dealer closest to my house.
I didn’t believe I had really matched all five until they verified it for me at the store!"
The 30-year-old winner, who enjoys singing in her free time, said she doesn’t have any special plans for her winnings yet.
Cash 5 drawings are conducted every Monday through Friday at 7:28 p.m. Players can win $100,000 for matching all five winning numbers; $350 for matching four of five numbers drawn; or $20 for matching three of five numbers drawn.
Tickets are available for Cash 5 and other Michigan Lottery on-line games at more than 6,400 Lottery retailers throughout the state.
