LANSING, June 14, 2002 – Raccoons and turtles and bears, oh my! These critters brought a lot of luck to Lisa Staudacher of Beverly Hills, who recently scratched off a "Michigan Wildlife" instant ticket worth $6,000!
The lucky ticket was purchased at Kakos Market, 1555 E. 14 Mile Road, in Birmingham.
"I didn’t believe that I had won the top prize when I scratched off the ticket," Staudacher said.
The lucky lady, who works as receptionist for Alan R. Miller, P.C., kept the winning ticket in her handbag at all times to ensure its safety before turning it in at the Lottery’s regional office in Sterling Heights. The lucky 40-year-old winner added that she plans to use her winnings to pay bills.
"Michigan Wildlife" is just one of many Michigan Lottery instant games available at more than 9,000 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
