An Oakland County man plans to give his daughter a “fantasy wedding” after winning $2 million playing the Michigan Lottery’s 100X The Cash instant game.
The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought his winning ticket at the Shell gas station, located at 721 South Lapeer Road in Oxford.
The 59-year-old player said he was in shock after learning he had won a top prize playing 100X The Cash. He hid his winning ticket in a kitchen drawer before visiting Lottery headquarters today to claim his prize.
He chose to take his prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $1.3 million rather than an annuity.
In addition to paying for his daughter’s wedding, the big winner plans to pay off his debt and take a vacation with his wife.
Players have won more than $46 million playing 100X The Cash, which launched in July 2015. Each $20 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $20 up to $2 million. More than $57 million in prizes remain, including one $2 million top prize, 48 $10,000 prizes, and 1,249 $1,000 prizes.
Lottery instant games may be purchased at 11,000 retailers across the state.
