LANSING, February 27, 2009 – A very lucky Durand woman is $10,000 richer after scratching a winning Million Dollar Madness instant ticket.
Katherine Ross is a regular Lottery player who has played for “many years.” She plans to start a Christmas fund with her prize money and save the rest. She enjoys solving puzzles in the newspaper in her free time.
Ross purchased the lucky winning ticket at 7-Eleven 049C, 2358 N. Center Rd., in Burton.
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 $740.7 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $15 billion to education in Michigan.
