LANSING, January 15, 2009 – The two top $200,000 prizes have been claimed on the Lottery’s Hot Slots Multiplier Instant ticket. The prizes were claimed only five days apart by two very lucky anonymous Lottery players.
The winning tickets were purchased at Speedway #2273, 3851 Auburn Rd., in Utica and 7-Eleven 32222, 45100 Gratiot Ave., in Macomb.
Hot Slots Multiplier 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 $740.7 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $15 billion to education in Michigan.
