LANSING, July 9, 2002 – A lucky Detroit man spelled his way to instant wealth with the Michigan Lottery’s "EZ Bingo" instant game! Upon scratching off a ticket he recently purchased he revealed a $25,000 top prize.
The winning ticket was purchased at Fielding Party Store, 20501 Grand River Ave., in Detroit.
"I was very excited when I learned I had won such a large prize," the winner said.
The winner, who requested anonymity, said he kept the winning ticket hidden in a drawer before turning it in at the Lottery’s regional office in Dearborn Heights. He added that he enjoys refinishing furniture in his free time, and that he has no special plans for his winnings at this time. However, there is no doubt he and his wife will enjoy their recent Lottery luck!
