Retiring early is the plan for this $2 Cash for Life Instant ticket top prize winner. Rather than taking $800 a week for life, the winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, opted to take the money and run all the way to the bank! The one-time cash option gave the winner a check for $885,684 before federal and state taxes.
This $2 Cash for Life ticket was purchased via an Instant Ticket vending machine at Detroit Metro Airport, in the McNamara Terminal.
This Cash for Life winning ticket is the largest prize claimed on a ticket purchased at Detroit Metro Airport since it began offering travelers the opportunity to play Michigan Lottery games while awaiting their flight departures or picking up their luggage earlier this year!
