LANSING, July 10, 2007 – A “shocked” winner claimed his $10,000 prize at the Lottery office in Sterling Heights after he matched four white balls and the Mega ball in the July 2 Mega Millions drawing.
Arnold Wilson said he’s been playing the Lottery since it began and this is his largest win to date. He has no immediate plans for his prize money.
The winner purchased the easy pick ticket at Mobil X, 3983 Van Dyke, in Almont.
