LANSING, August 9, 2007 – A very lucky Crystal Falls man claimed a $1 million prize after he scratched a top prize winning $40,000,000 Spectacular Instant ticket!
The winner, who chose to remain anonymous, said he buys Instant Lottery tickets regularly. He was shocked with the win. “I thought I was losing my mind”, said the lucky winner.
He plans to invest his prize money and hid the winning ticket in the trunk of a car before cashing his ticket in at the Lottery office in Lansing.
The winning ticket was purchased at Sagola Mini Mart, N10096 State Hwy. M95, in Sagola.
