LANSING, June 18, 1999 – Timothy Sevenski of Owosso could hardly believe his eyes when he looked at the Michigan Lottery "Casino Fortune" ticket he had purchased and realized he had won $10,000!
"I was at work when I scratched off the ticket," Sevenski said. "I just about went into shock!"
Prior to turning the winning ticket in at the Lottery’s regional office in Lansing, the fork lift driver for Vaungarde kept it in his wallet to ensure its safety. The avid fisherman and NASCAR enthusiast said he plans to use part of his winnings to pay bills and save the rest.
The 33-year-old winner said he has been playing Michigan Lottery games for the past 15 years. The winning ticket was purchased at Liquor Station, 912 W. Main, in Owosso.
"Casino Fortune" is just one of many Michigan Lottery instant tickets available at more than 9,300 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
