LANSING, September 23, 1999 — Michael Puszcz of Warren took a bite out of the Michigan Lottery after scratching off a Michigan Lottery "The Big Dog" instant ticket to reveal he had won one of the $25,000 top prizes!
The 28-year-old winner purchased the lucky ticket at Speedway #2227, 5550 Fenton Road, in Flint. Puszcz could hardly believe his eyes when he saw what he had won.
"I scratched the ticket off and there it was," Puszcz said. "I didn’t think I had actually won anything at first!"
The supervisor at Target said he has been a regular instant Lottery game player for the past 10 years. Puszcz said he plans to use his winnings to pay bills and purchase a computer.
"The Big Dog" is just one of many Michigan Lottery instant tickets available at more than 9,300 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
