The player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, bought a combination of $1 and $2 “Cash for Life” instant tickets. “I scratched off the $2 tickets first. I saved the $1 ticket for last.” That ticket proved to be the lucky one, winning the player $400 a week for life!
The first thing she did was call her son, who was skeptical about the win. “He came by to check the ticket himself,” she stated.
The winner plans to use some of her money to take vacation trips to Florida and California.
The winning ticket was sold by Liquor Basket Party Store located at 3581 Dixie Hwy. in Saginaw.
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 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.
