LANSING, June 6, 2000 — A lucky Detroit woman now has a lot more cash in her pockets after she scratched off a Michigan Lottery "Fat Pockets" instant ticket to reveal she had won a $200,000 top prize!
"I scratched the ticket off while I was still at the store," the winner said. "I was almost certain right away that I had won the $200,000 prize, but I couldn’t believe it! When I got home I called my niece and had her come over so I could tell her the good news."
The winner, who requested anonymity, said she has been playing Michigan Lottery games for the past 27 years, and she truly enjoys the wide variety of games offered.
She purchased the winning ticket at Smokers Best Buy, 23063 Coolidge Hwy., in Oak Park.
The lucky lady said she does not yet have any plans for her winnings.
"Fat Pockets" is just one of many Michigan Lottery instant tickets available at more than 9,300 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
