LANSING, October 7, 1999 – A Plymouth man is planning to celebrate his 41st wedding anniversary in style, thanks to the $100,000 top prize he recently won in the Michigan Lottery’s Cash 5 game!
The 60-year-old winner, who requested anonymity, matched all five numbers in the September 29 drawing – 3, 7, 17, 22 and 38. The winning Cash 5 ticket was purchased at Bill’s Market, 584 Starkweather St., in Plymouth.
"I didn’t believe that I had really won until I called the store to make sure I actually had the winning numbers," the winner said. "Now my wife and I can take a nice vacation to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary in November!"
When not watching football and golf, or playing cards, the winner said he likes to play Michigan Lottery games. He has been a regular Lottery player for the past 27 years, and he truly enjoys the wide variety of games the Lottery offers.
The lucky man, a cleaner at Ford Motor Company, said he plans to use part of his winnings to pay for his granddaughter’s wedding, in addition to the anniversary celebration he has planned.
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.
