LANSING, September 20, 2002 – Dan Harris of Taylor could hardly believe his eyes upon scratching off a Michigan Lottery "Big Fat Wallet" instant ticket to reveal a $10,000 prize.
The winning "Big Fat Wallet" ticket was purchased at Goddard Liquor Store, 22339 Goddard Road, in Taylor.
"I scratched off the ticket as soon as I bought it and I knew right away that I was instantly $10,000 richer," said Harris.
The lucky 36-year-old winner, who works at Red Spot, said he kept the winning ticket in his wallet at all times to ensure its safety before turning it in at the Lottery’s regional office in Dearborn Heights.
Harris, who enjoys collecting coins in his free time, said he plans to use his winnings to pay bills.
"Big Fat Wallet" is just one of many instant games available at more than 9,000 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
