LANSING, July 20, 2007 – The Alpha Dog Lottery club was happy when the Mega Millions ticket they purchased turned out to be a huge winner!
They matched the first five ball numbers, without matching the Mega ball, in the July 13 drawing to win the second-tier $250,000 prize. The club also matched one white ball number and the gold Mega ball number to bump their prize up $3 to a whopping $250,003!
The winning easy pick ticket was purchased at Middletown Market Inc., 5580 E. Grand River Ave., in Howell.
