LANSING, October 2, 2002 – Lucky players just keep on winning with the Lottery’s Michigan Rolldown game! The two members of the "Ditto Club" Lottery Club of Flint matched all five numbers in the September 30 Michigan Rolldown drawing to win a $15,053 prize! The winning numbers for that day’s drawing were: 5, 10, 27, 28 and 31.
The winning "easy pick" Michigan Rolldown ticket was purchased at Kessel Store #425, G5186 Fenton Road, in Flint.
Bonnie Park and Dolores Konowich, both of Flint, are the two members of the "Ditto Club" Lottery Club. They discovered they had matched all five winning numbers while watching television together the night they purchased the ticket.
"We were both very excited to learn we had won the jackpot," said Konowich. "I still can’t believe that we won!"
Prior to turning the winning ticket in at the Lottery’s regional office in Bridgeport, Park said she kept it in her purse to its ensure safety. Both lucky winners plan to use their winning for vacation.
