Bay City retailers have sold two big winning tickets! A $5 winning Cash for Life ticket was purchased just two blocks away from the 7-Eleven located at 1915 S. Euclid Ave. that just sold the May 2 Classic Lotto 47 ticket that carries a jackpot of $6,319,677. No one has claimed this winning ticket yet!
Guess you could say Bay City is a Michigan Lottery Hot Spot right now!
The top prize on the $5 Cash for Life ticket is $2,000 a week for life. That is exactly what a very lucky, avid instant ticket player claimed at the Michigan Lottery headquarters on Friday, May 4. This player will now go to his mailbox once a year and find a check for 52 weeks of Cash for Life payments. “I’ll be pretty much set for life,” this player told family members who were on-hand to witness their sibling get the first installment of his Cash for Life winnings.
The winning ticket was sold at Rich Oil #8714 located at 1809 S. Euclid in Bay City.
