LANSING, January 21, 2009 – A very lucky anonymous couple claimed a $250,000 prize won after scratching a Holly Jolly Jackpot instant ticket.

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.
