LANSING, January 13, 2009 – Loretta Momany was shocked when she matched four white Mega Millions ball numbers and the gold Mega ball number on July 15, 2008 and won $10,000!
The regular Lottery player from Novi hid the winning ticket in a safe deposit box before cashing it at the Lottery’s Dearborn Heights office. Momany has no special plans for the money, which was won with an easy-pick ticket.
The lucky winning ticket was purchased at Busch’s #1205, 41840 W. 10 Mile Rd., in Novi.
