A Newaygo County woman believes wishful thinking helped her win a $100,000 prize playing the Michigan Lottery’s Bonus Ball Bingo instant game.

Sally Ann Brock, of Grant, bought her winning ticket at Plumb’s Valu-Rite Foods, located at 193 West River Valley Drive in Newaygo.

“I remember seeing that I only needed ‘G-55’ to get an ‘X’ on my ticket to win $100,000 while I was scratching my ticket,” said Brock. “I even said ‘It would be nice if I won’ and thought about what I would do with the money.

“The next number I scratched off was G-55. I was in disbelief!”

Brock couldn’t believe her eyes and at first thought she might only have won $100.

“I took my ticket to a retailer to have the clerk scan it for me so I would know what I won,” said Brock. “The clerk scanned it and told me it was a $100,000 winner and to sign the back of it right away.”
