LANSING, March 6, 2002 – The winning never stops with the Lottery’s Michigan Rolldown Game! Two lucky jackpot winners, one from Dearborn and one from Southfield, each won $8,465 before taxes in the February 20 drawing. The winning numbers for that drawing were: 4, 12, 19, 25 and 33.
Cecilia Paciejewski, 81, of Dearborn said she was "shocked and very happy" to learn she held a jackpot-winning ticket. Paciejewski wasn’t too concerned about misplacing her winning "easy pick" ticket—she kept it on the kitchen table until claiming her prize at the Lottery’s regional office in Dearborn Heights. A Lottery player for 25 years, Paciejewski, who said she enjoys "hanging out with the girls," has no specific plans for her winnings at this time—but surely she and her husband, Steve, will enjoy their newfound fortune! The homemaker purchased her winning Michigan Rolldown ticket at Tri Daly Drug, 25853 Ford Road, in Dearborn Heights.
The second jackpot winner, Previn Granger of Southfield, purchased his winning ticket at Sam D Market, 20411 John R. St., in Detroit.
The February 20 drawing yielded $58,472 in prizes shared by 19,072 winners. In addition to the jackpot winners, 71 winners matched four numbers for a prize of $97; 1,957 winners matched three numbers for a $9 prize; and 17,042 matched two numbers for the $1 prize.
Michigan Rolldown’s first drawing was held on February 28, 2000. Drawings are held six days a week—Monday through Saturday—at 7:28 p.m., and the cost to play is $1 per wager. Tickets are available at more than 7,000 Lottery retailers statewide. Also, effective March 4 through March 30, Michigan Rolldown players can once again take advantage of the "Bonus Play" promotion, which offers players who purchase a ticket with five wagers or more an "easy pick" ticket—absolutely free! Players who purchase a 10-panel ticket will receive two free "easy picks."
