You Could Be a Winner and Not Even Know It! $2.4 Million in Top Michigan Lottery Prizes Remain Unclaimed!

LANSING, August 27, 1999 — The Michigan Lottery is searching for winners!

Michigan Lottery players from all across the state are missing out on $2.4 million in Michigan Lottery winnings as 16 top prizes wait to be claimed. Among them are three prizes in the August 10 Big Game drawing. Three lucky tickets matched the first five numbers in that drawing, making each worth an instant $150,000!

The winning numbers for the August 10 Big Game drawing were: 13, 27, 32, 43, 50 and the Big Money Ball number was 2. The winning $150,000 tickets were sold at Mikey’s Gas & Mini Mart in Dearborn, Perky Pantry Mobil in Dundee and Themar #3 in Battle Creek. Lottery officials hope to hear from these individuals very soon.

Additionally, the following $150,000 Big Game prizes are quickly approaching their one-year expiration date in September:

September 11, 1998 September 29, 1998
 The Big Game  The Big Game
 21-31-34-35-43 gold 04 01-08-18-27-38 gold 24
$150,000 (match first 5) $150,000 (match first 5)
Bazzy’s Mobil Carters #09 Livonia Houghton Lake

Michigan Lottery players have one year from the draw date to claim an on-line prize.

The one-year anniversary of the Big Game ticket sold in Livonia falls on a Sunday when Lottery offices are closed, so it will expire at the close of business Monday, September 13. The holder of the Big Game ticket sold in Houghton Lake will have until the close of business Wednesday, September 29 to claim the prize.

"If you have any old Michigan Lottery tickets laying around your house or office, I urge you to check them right away," said Michigan Lottery Commissioner Don Gilmer. "The time you take to check the numbers on those tickets could end up being very, very valuable!"

There are 11 other current unclaimed lottery prizes, including:

If Michigan Lottery prizes are not claimed within the one-year period, they revert to the state School Aid Fund. In the case of a Big Game prize, in which all Big Game states have contributed to funding the prize, Michigan’s allotted share of the prize money will be transferred to the School Aid Fund.
