Anniversary ticket pays off first $300,000

LANSING, July 15, 2008 – When Jack Gunn scratched his 15th Anniversary Wild Time ticket, he didn’t believe his eyes! The Muskegon man was shocked when he realized what he thought was a $30,000 winner was really a $300,000 winner!

Gunn is a regular instant Lottery player who plans on “taking it easy” with his prize money. He’s also considering purchasing a house.

The winning ticket was purchased at KB’s Market, 1431 S. Getty St., in Muskegon.

15th Anniversary Wild Time is just one of many Michigan Lottery instant tickets available at nearly 11,000 Lottery retailers statewide.

Over 95 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to retailers. In fiscal year 2007, the contribution to schools was $748.9 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $14.3 billion to education in Michigan.
