A lucky Michigan Lottery player is a millionaire after one ticket matched this weekend’s Lotto 47 numbers to win the game’s $1.1 million jackpot.
The winning ticket matched all six numbers drawn Saturday night: 02-04-05-10-28-30. It was bought at the Meijer, located at 1251 West M-32 in Alpena.
Saturday’s jackpot win marks the second time the game’s jackpot has been won this month and the fifth time it has been won in 2015.
On Oct. 14, a Macomb county woman won a $4.5 million Lotto 47 jackpot. In January, the Lotto 47 jackpot was won twice, with the big wins coming just a week apart. In July, a lucky Otsego County man won a $13.1 million Lotto 47 jackpot.
The lucky ticket holder from Saturday’s drawing should contact the Lottery’s Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to make an appointment to claim the prize at the Lottery headquarters in Lansing. Lotto 47 tickets are valid for one year from the drawing date.
Each Lotto 47 play is only $1. Players select six numbers from one to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot starting at $1 million and that grows until someone wins it. For an additional $1 per game, players may add EZMatch to their ticket for a chance to win up to $500 instantly. Lotto 47 drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday at 7:29 p.m. Tickets may be purchased until 7:08 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
