Two Mason County men are celebrating after their lottery club won a $4.2 million Lotto 47 jackpot from the Michigan Lottery.
The lottery club matched the six Lotto 47 numbers drawn on Jan. 9 – 09-33-38-40-43-45 – to win the game’s $4.2 million jackpot. They bought the winning ticket at Bonser’s of Custer, located at 2391 East State Street.
They learned they might be big winners after a family member told them a winning ticket was bought at Bonser’s.
The winners visited Lottery headquarters Thursday to claim their prize. They chose to take their prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $2.6 million rather than an annuity.
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.
