A lucky Poker Lotto player matched the five cards in Sunday night’s drawing to win $100,000 from the Michigan Lottery.
The winning ticket was purchased at the Meijer gas station located at 9701 Belleville Road in Belleville. The five cards it matched were the King of Hearts, Nine of Diamonds, Four of Clubs, Four of Spades and Two of Spades.
The ticket holder should contact the Lottery’s public relations division at 517-373-1237 to arrange an appointment to claim the prize at Lottery headquarters in Lansing. The lucky player has one year from the drawing date to claim the big prize.
Poker Lotto – one of the Lottery’s newest draw games – offers players two great games in every hand: a chance to win instantly right in the store and walk out with a cash prize range from $2 to $500; plus a nightly lotto drawing with prizes ranging from $3 to the grand prize of $100,000! Players should keep in mind that the nightly drawing is an entirely separate game from the instant-win game played when they purchase a ticket. Winning the instant-win game is based on whether they are dealt a winning poker hand. The nightly drawing is exclusively a matching game. Cards from the nightly drawing are not used to form a winning poker hand. To win a prize in the nightly drawing, a player must match two or more cards with the cards drawn.
