Mega Millions fever hit a group of co-workers during the push toward the historic March 30 jackpot of $656 million! That is when they began their quest to win Mega Millions as a Lottery club, and donned themselves the Lucky 16! Two weeks and five drawings later, the Lucky 16 are each taking home their piece of the $250,000 Mega Millions jackpot from the Friday, April 13 drawing.
The Lucky 16 purchased the winning ticket at The Party Keg located at 691 S. Lapeer Rd. in Oxford.
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.
