“I was on my way to work when I bought the ticket. I scratched it off in my car. When I saw I’d won a million dollars, I couldn’t believe it.” So states the player who won $1 million by playing the Michigan’s Lottery’s $50,000,000 Cash Spectacular instant game.
“My heart was racing, my hands were shaking” says the lucky player, who wishes to remain anonymous. “I drove around in circles for ten minutes before heading home to share the news with family. I knew I couldn’t work then, I was too excited!”
This fortunate winner intends to “check out options” and spend the money wisely.
The winning ticket was sold by Mitch’s Party Store located at 37504 Michigan Ave. in Wayne.
