LANSING, July 25, 2002 – A lucky Fife Lake lady revealed all the right words upon scratching off a Michigan Lottery "Cashword" instant ticket to win a $35,000 top prize!
The winning ticket was purchased at Quick Sav Food Store #21, 7501 US-131, in Fife Lake.
The lucky 73-year-old homemaker, who requested anonymity, said she only occasionally plays Michigan Lottery games, so she was pleased to win such a large prize!
"When my daughter goes shopping for me, sometimes I will have her buy a few Lottery tickets for me," the winner said. "It still hasn’t hit me yet that I won $35,000. When I realized I had a winning ticket, I just kept saying: ‘It can’t be true!’"
The winner, who enjoys working around her home and relaxing in her free time, said she plans to save her winnings for the future.
"Cashword" is just one of many Michigan Lottery instant tickets available at more than 9,000 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
