LANSING, April 27, 2000 — The Michigan Lottery’s Big Game jackpot continues to grow, and the excitement generated by this huge jackpot is enticing Lottery players throughout Michigan to try their luck at becoming a multi-millionaire! The estimated jackpot for the Friday, April 28 drawing now sits at a whopping $100 million!
If one winning ticket matches all six numbers and the player has selected annuity payments, before taxes it would amount roughly to:
$3.84 million annually for 26 years; or
$73,964 per week; or
$10,566 per day!
For those who prefer the one-time cash option payment, there is a pretty nice payday as well. If one lucky cash option player matches all six winning numbers, he or she will take home a check for approximately $51 million, before taxes — the estimated present cash value of the $100 million jackpot!
Big Game tickets are available in Michigan, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Virginia. Friday’s drawing will be conducted at 11 p.m.
