A Clinton Township man stopped his wife as she was walking through the room with a basket of laundry and asked her this question: guess what I won? Then he proceeded to tell her that he’d just won $300,000 on a Wild Time Mania Instant Lottery ticket. She was stunned and a little skeptical, “I thought it could be $30,000 but not $300,000,” she said.
The player, a retiree who wishes to remain anonymous, said he picked the Wild Time Mania ticket because he likes the game. Other Wild Time Mania fans will be happy to know that there is another $300,000 winning ticket out there somewhere.
The winner intends to put his money in the bank and think about what he’d like to do with it.
The winning ticket was sold at Venice Liquor Shoppe located at 40000 Hayes Rd. in Clinton Township.
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.
