LANSING, January 29, 2008 – A Brownstown man cashed in a Mega Millions ticket worth a whopping $10,000! Angelo Bacciocchi matched four white ball numbers, and the gold Mega ball number to win the prize.
The regular Lottery player has no immediate plans for his prize money. Bacciocchi has played since the Lottery’s inception in 1972 and told officials that this is his largest win to date.
The winning easy pick ticket was purchased at Rays Prime Foods Inc., 23167 Eureka Rd., in Taylor.
