LANSING, July 29, 2002 – The Michigan Lottery is anxiously waiting to learn the identity of Michigan’s newest Lottery multi-millionaire. One lucky individual is holding the jackpot-winning ticket from the Saturday, July 27, 2002 Michigan Millions drawing.
The winning ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven #051C, 124 Cochlin St., in Traverse City at 2:20 p.m. on July 27, 2002, for the July 27 drawing. This ticket matched all six winning numbers in that night’s drawing: 35, 36, 38, 41, 46 and 51.
The announced jackpot for the July 27 drawing was $29.6 million. If the lucky Lottery player who purchased the ticket chooses to receive his or her winnings in one lump-sum payment, he or she will collect $14,431,254, the present cash value of the jackpot before taxes. If, however, he or she selects annuity payments for his or her jackpot winnings, the winner will collect approximately $989,070 per year, before taxes, for the next 30 years.
When the winner is ready to collect his or her winnings, he or she needs to contact the Lottery’s Public Relations division at 517-373-1237. The jackpot winner will be required to travel to Lottery headquarters in Lansing to collect the jackpot prize winnings.
Michigan Lottery on-line prizes are valid for a period of one year from the draw date. Because the one-year anniversary of the draw date for this drawing falls on a Sunday, when Lottery offices are closed, the winner will have until the close of business on Monday, July 28, 2003 to claim his or her prize.
If Michigan Lottery prizes are not claimed within the one-year period, they revert to the state School Aid Fund, which supports kindergarten through 12th grade public education in Michigan. For more information about any unclaimed Michigan Lottery prize, players can call (517) 335-5640.
