Longtime player wins big

LANSING, July 10, 2007 – Richard Clink of Port Huron won $10,000 after he matched four white balls and the Mega ball in the July 3 Mega Millions drawing.

Clink, who found the ticket from the March 6 drawing in his wallet, was shocked with the win.

He hid the winning easy pick ticket in a drawer before claiming his prize at the Lottery office in Sterling Heights.  He has no immediate plans for the prize money.

The winner purchased the ticket at Tim’s Party Store, 1038 S. Parker St., in Marine City.

Mega Millions is a multi-state lottery game in Michigan, California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Washington.  Wagers cost $1 each and tickets may be purchased at nearly 11,000 Michigan 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.
