Bartender collects $10,000!

LANSING, July 15, 2009 – Michael Mlostek, a bartender from Livonia, could not believe his luck when he scratched his Million Dollar Mega Play ticket to reveal a $10,000 prize!

Mlostek hid the winning ticket in his house before cashing it at the Lottery’s Dearborn Heights office. He has made no special plans for the prize money.

The lucky winning ticket was purchased at Hubbard Lake General Store, 6914 Hurbert Rd., in Hubbard Lake.

Million Dollar Mega Play 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.
