LANSING, August 18, 1999 — A Marshall man recently experienced a bit of Lottery luck when he won the $100,000 top prize in the Michigan Lottery’s Cash 5 game!
The winner, who requested anonymity, matched all five numbers in the August 3 drawing — 4, 10, 21, 26, and 39. The winning Cash 5 ticket was purchased at Spee-D-Mart #170, 319 E. Michigan Ave., in Marshall.
"I watched the Cash 5 drawing on WOTV-TV 41 in Battle Creek," the winner said. "I was completely shocked when I saw my numbers come up! I called three different places to verify that I had actually matched all five numbers."
The lucky man said he has been playing Michigan Lottery games for the past 27 years and he truly enjoys the variety of games the Lottery offers. He said he plans to use his winnings to make investments.
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.
