LANSING, October 26, 1999 — A Flint woman couldn’t contain her excitement when she realized she had 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 October 19 Cash 5 drawing — 11, 12, 14, 25 and 26. The winning Cash 5 ticket was purchased at Southside Liquor Shoppe, 3401 Lapeer Road, in Flint.
“I watched the Cash 5 drawing on television and knew right away that I had won,” the winner said. “I always play the same numbers. When I saw that I had won, I said ‘My numbers finally fell!’”
The Flint woman said she has been playing Lottery games for the past 27 years, and she truly enjoys the wide variety of games offered.
The lucky lady said she doesn’t have any plans for her winnings yet. She added she is still “thinking about what to do with it!”
Cash 5 drawings are conducted every Monday through Friday at 7:28 p.m. Players can win $100,000 for matching all five 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.
