Lucky man wins "Blazing" prize

LANSING, May 15, 2007 – A very lucky 25-year-old man is able to plan his wedding with a little more pizzazz today!  He cashed in a top winning $17,000 Blazing Red 7’s Instant ticket at Lottery Central in Lansing.

The man, who opted to remain anonymous, scratched the ticket and “froze” after learning of his good fortune.  His girlfriend had to double check the winning ticket that was eventually hidden in the freezer before being redeemed.  The lucky winner enjoys golfing in his free time.

The winning ticket was purchased at Fox Party Store, 107 S. Main St., in Leslie.

Blazing Red 7’s is just one of many Michigan Lottery Instant tickets available at nearly 11,000 Lottery retailers statewide.

All proceeds from the Lottery are contributed to the state School Aid Fund which supports kindergarten through 12th grade public education in Michigan.  In fiscal year 2006, the contribution was $688 million.
