LANSING, November 18, 2002 – A Marlette man went wild with excitement upon scratching off a Michigan Lottery "Casino Wild" instant ticket to reveal a $100,000 top prize!
"I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, so I had a co-worker double check the ticket," the 39-year-old-winner exclaimed. "When he confirmed I had won, I just stared at him in shock and disbelief!"
The lucky winner, who requested anonymity, purchased the winning ticket at Pronto Marts Inc., 3355 MainSt., in Marlette.
He said he kept the winning ticket locked in a box to ensure its safety prior to turning it in at Lottery headquarters in Lansing. The winner, who enjoys pheasant hunting in his spare time, plans to use part of his winnings to purchase a truck and invest the remainder for the future.
"Casino Wild" is one of many Michigan Lottery instant tickets available at more than 9,000 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.
