LANSING, October 18, 2007 – A very lucky Clinton Township woman is $10,000 richer after she scratched a winning $10,000,000 Game Book Instant ticket.
Peggy Loverde said she had to have her ticket validated before she could believe it was a winner. She has been playing the Lottery for five years and hid the winning ticket in her desk drawer until claiming the prize.
