LANSING, January 30, 2007 – Robert Davis, a 36-year-old Mega Millions player, matched four white ball numbers and the gold Mega ball in the Jan. 19 drawing to win a $10,000 prize!

The lucky regular Lottery player hid the easy pick ticket in his drawer before cashing it in at one of the Lottery’s regional offices.  He has no immediate plans for his winnings, but plans on saving the majority of it.

Davis purchased his lucky ticket at Efros Drugs, 6427 Orchard Lake Rd., in West Bloomfield.
