LANSING, November 18, 2002 – Robert Curtis of Hawks had a super day upon scratching off a Michigan Lottery "Super 6s" instant game ticket to reveal a $6,000 top prize!
Curtis, 54, purchased the winning ticket at Night Hawk Inn,4095 Pinkerton Ave., in Hawks.
"When I finished scratching off the ticket and saw all of the sixes, I was stunned," said Curtis. "I yelled whoopee! Winning this prize was great timing with the holidays coming up."
Curtis, an avid hunter in his spare time, said he went directly to a Lottery bank claim center in northern Michigan upon learning he had a winning ticket. The lucky winner said he plans to use part of his winnings to purchase holiday gifts for his family and will save the remainder for the future.
"Super 6s" is just one of many Michigan Lottery instant tickets available at more than 9,000 Lottery retailers statewide.
