The Good Luck Lotto Club of Hudson visited Michigan Lottery headquarters today to claim their $250,000 prize. The two person lottery club matched 5 white balls on the May 29 Mega Millions drawing.
One club member told a Lottery staffer that a portion of her winnings will be designated to help those less fortunate by donating to a local charity. The other member stated that he has his sights set on a new vehicle, not sure what make and model yet, but the winnings will make the pool of options a bit larger.
The winning ticket was purchased by the club at Beecher BP Gas located at 2982 W. Beecher Rd. in Adrian.
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.
