LANSING, March 14, 2002 – A lucky Houghton Lake homemaker recently "rolled" her way to riches, winning a $7,000 top prize after scratching a "Luck of the Dice" instant ticket from the Michigan Lottery!
The winning ticket was purchased at Carter’s #09, 8135 W. Houghton Lake, in Houghton Lake.
The lucky lady, who requested anonymity, said she only plays Michigan Lottery games occasionally, so she was pleasantly surprised to win such a large prize.
"I was at home when I scratched off the ticket," the winner said. "I didn’t believe it! I called my friend to come over and double-check the ticket—and I realized then that I really had won the top prize!"
The winner said she has no special plans for her winnings at this time, but it is certain she will enjoy them!
"Luck of the Dice" is just one of many Michigan Lottery instant tickets available at more than 9,000 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
