LANSING, November 3, 2008 – A Garden City resident is $10,000 richer after scratching a winning Million Dollar Madness instant ticket.
Lois Priebe told Lottery officials she was “in shock” and “didn’t know if she read it right” after revealing the huge prize amount.
The 52-year-old is a regular Lottery player and plans to use the prize money to pay bills.
Priebe purchased the winning ticket at Jerry’s Party Store, 28974 Warren Rd., in Westland.
Million Dollar Madness 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 2008, the contribution to schools was over $740 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $15 billion to education in Michigan.
