LANSING, June 8, 2000 — Brenda Borowicz of Warren had a picture-perfect day when she scratched off a Michigan Lottery "Casino Nights" ticket to reveal she had won a $1,000,000 top prize! "I found out that I had won while I was at work," Borowicz said. "I tried to act normal and work through the rest of the day, but it was really hard! I started shaking and crying when I got home."
The photo technician at CVS Pharmacy in Center Line said she has been playing Michigan Lottery games for over 20 years and her favorites are Michigan Lotto, The Big Game, the Daily 3 & 4 games and, of course, the instant games!
The winning ticket was purchased at King Smokers Shop, 24059 Dequindre Road, in Hazel Park. Prior to turning the ticket in at Lottery headquarters, Borowicz said she had a friend keep it in his pocket to ensure its safety.
The lucky lady, who enjoys watching "scary movies" and reading mystery and horror stories in her free time, doesn’t yet have any plans for her winnings.
"Casino Nights" is just one of many Michigan Lottery instant tickets available at more than 9,300 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
