LANSING, March 18, 2002 – A lucky Allen Park man won a $21,393 jackpot when he matched all five numbers in the March 12 Michigan Rolldown drawing! The winning numbers for that day’s drawing were: 12, 13, 17, 21 and 22.
In total for the March 12 Michigan Rolldown drawing, 24,062 winners shared $74,624 in prizes. In addition to the sole jackpot winner, 79 winners matched four numbers to win a $111 prize; 2,560 matched three numbers to win a $9 prize; and 21,422 matched two numbers to win the $1 prize.
The lucky ticket was purchased at Ashcrafts Little Store, 7343 Park Ave., in Allen Park.
"I chose my own numbers based on a combination of my children’s birthdates," the winner said. "I realized I had won the jackpot after watching the Rolldown drawing on television!"
The 74-year-old retiree, who requested anonymity, said he enjoys bowling, golfing and reading in his free time. He added that he plans to use his winnings to make home improvements.
