A Marquette County woman is counting her blessings after winning $100,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Diamond Payout online game.
“I was so surprised when I won, and I didn’t believe it at first,” said the player, who chose to remain anonymous. “I didn’t begin believing I had won until I called the Lottery and they confirmed the prize amount for me. I’ve been looking at my online Lottery account every day and still can’t believe I am a big winner.”
A loyal Lottery player, the winner first learned of the online games while logging non-winning tickets into her Players Club account.
“I saw an advertisement for the new online games and tried a couple of the demos,” she said. “I chose to make a deposit and picked the Diamond Payout game because I thought the tickets were pretty.”
With her winnings, she plans to pay bills and help family members in need.
“I’ve played the Lottery for a long time, and thought about how this would feel and I can say that I feel incredibly blessed,” she said.
