A mid-Michigan Lottery player is the first winner of the top prize in the new Monopoly Jackpot instant game that went on sale Jan. 7!
Thomas Wickens, of Mason and a loyal Lottery player for 30 years, was excited to find he had scratched off the $300,000 prize on the new Monopoly Jackpot game. After Wickens realized he had won the big prize, he put the ticket in a safe until he came to Lottery headquarters today.
The Michigan State University employee plans to save most of his winnings but is also looking at buying a new truck. He bought his winning ticket at the Speedway at 110 N. Cedar St. in Mason.
