LANSING, July 15, 2009 – Judy Rosenow checked her ticket 20 times before she believed she had won a $10,000 prize on the Lottery’s Million Dollar Mega Play Instant game.

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.
