$10,019 Mega Millions prize claimed

LANSING, February 24, 2009 – A very lucky Southfield man won five different times on the same Mega Millions ticket and won $10,019! Charles Webb matched four white ball numbers and the gold Mega ball on one line, two white ball numbers and the gold Mega ball on another line and one white ball number and the gold Mega ball on three separate lines to win the prize.

The 77-year-old regular Lottery player was shocked with his win. He randomly selected his own numbers and plans to save the prize money.

The lucky winning ticket was purchased at Oak Park Station, 26700 Greenfield Rd., in Oak Park.

Mega Millions is a multi-state lottery game in Michigan, California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Washington. Wagers cost $1 each and tickets may be purchased at nearly 11,000 Michigan Lottery retailers statewide.

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.
