LANSING, March 26, 2009 – A very lucky anonymous woman claimed a huge $12,000 on the Lottery’s Multi-Prize Bingo Instant ticket.
The 66-year-old regular Lottery player was shocked when she discovered her win. She plans to donate some of the prize money to charity.
The lucky ticket was purchased at the Bay View E-Z Mart, 1087 N. US Highway 31, in Petoskey.
Multi-Prize Bingo 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 over $740.7 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $15 billion to education in Michigan.
