LANSING, February 4, 2000 — A Weidman man brought home big bucks after winning the $100,000 top prize in the Michigan Lottery’s Cash 5 game!
The winner, who requested anonymity, matched all five numbers in the January 28 drawing — 10, 12, 18, 35 and 37. The winning Cash 5 "easy pick" ticket was purchased at Your Party Store, 3338 N. Woodruff Road, in Weidman.
"I dropped by to visit my niece, and while I was there I remembered that I had not yet checked my Lottery tickets," the winner said. "I asked to look at her newspaper and I could hardly believe what I was seeing! I called my daughter and my girlfriend right away to tell them what I won. Neither one of them could believe it either."
The lucky man said he has been playing Michigan Lottery games for the past 27 years and he truly enjoys the wide variety of games offered.
The Weidman resident said he plans to use his winnings to pay bills. He also offered the following words of encouragement to other Lottery hopefuls: "Just play to win!"
Cash 5 drawings are conducted every Monday through Friday at 7:28 p.m. Tickets are available for Cash 5 drawings and other Michigan Lottery on-line games at more than 6,400 Lottery retailers throughout the state.
