LANSING, September 22, 2008 – An anonymous self-employed man is a new Michigan millionaire after he revealed the top $1 million prize on the Lottery’s Fabulous Fortune instant game!
The 46-year-old winner has played the Lottery for years, all across the country. He found luck in Michigan and walked away very wealthy.
The Ypsilanti man plans to invest his money in an organic, one-of-a-kind Michigan farm. He would like this farm to be a model for others across the United States.
The lucky winner enjoys everything that has to do with the outdoors – camping, biking and boating were a few examples he gave to Lottery officials.
The winning $1 million ticket was purchased at Target II Party Shoppe, 4 N. Hewitt Rd., in Ypsilanti.
Fabulous Fortune 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.
