Chesterfield winner claims prize

LANSING, September 5, 2007 – Thomas Graber of Chesterfield won $10,000 when he matched four white ball numbers and the Mega ball number in the August 21 Mega Millions drawing.

The winner said he checked his ticket at the bowling alley and was “astonished” because he doesn’t play the Lottery very often.

The winning easy pick ticket was purchased at Premier Lanes, 33151 23 Mile Rd., in Chesterfield.  He plans to invest the prize money.

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.
