$10 Instant ticket, Sterling Silver’s top prize of $500,000 claimed!
Super Bowl Sunday will go down in history as a big win for one player who wishes to remain anonymous from Clinton Township. That’s the day, a quick trip to the convenience store and one spontaneous buy later made them $500,000 richer! “The guy checking out in front of me bought a Sterling Silver ticket and I thought, that looks interesting and bought one too! So glad I did!” Winnings are being used to pay off bills and to start college funds for the player’s children.
The winning ticket was sold at Diamond Dot Party Store located at 20520 15 Mile Road in Clinton Township.
