A Lottery club with five members, who wish to remain anonymous, won the third $1,000,000 Raffle of Riches drawing which took place on December 28. The entire group came to Lansing’s Lottery office to claim their prize.
The winning ticket was sold by Speedway #5503 at 5211 N. US Highway 23, in Oscoda, Michigan.

In fiscal year 2011, the contribution to schools was over $727.3 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed over $16 billion to education in Michigan.
