Today a lucky Detroit man scores big with the Michigan Lottery’s newest game Poker Lotto! Gibran Cobb traveled to Lottery Headquarters in Lansing to claim the first Poker Lotto jackpot of $100,000!

Cobb’s ticket matched all five cards from the November 13 drawing to win $100,000!  The winning cards were: 7 of Spades – 3 of Spades – Queen of Hearts – 6 of Hearts and 10 of Clubs. Cobb’s ticket was not an instant winner; however he purchased the jackpot winning Poker Lotto ticket at Matthews Food Liquor & Wine located at 14050 W. McNichols Rd. in Detroit.

Cobb has no immediate plans for his new found wealth, but told Lottery staff that the whole win doesn’t seem real just quite yet.
