The lucky player, who choose to remain anonymous, thought he had won $15,000 and didn’t know his prize was $100,000 until he called the Lottery.
His winning ticket matched the cards drawn on Tuesday: five of Diamonds, three of Spades, king of Clubs, nine of Spades, and five of Clubs. The player bought his winning ticket at the Charlevoix Food Mart, located at 1308 Bridge Street in Charlevoix.
The player visited Lottery headquarters today to claim his prize. With his winnings the disabled veteran plans to pay bills.
Poker Lotto offers players two great games in every hand: a chance to win instantly right in the store and walk out with a cash prize range from $2 to $500; plus a nightly lotto drawing with prizes ranging from $3 to the grand prize of $100,000!
Players should keep in mind that the nightly drawing is an entirely separate game from the instant-win game played when they purchase a ticket. Winning the instant-win game is based on whether they are dealt a winning poker hand. The nightly drawing is exclusively a matching game. Cards from the nightly drawing are not used to form a winning poker hand. To win a prize in the nightly drawing, a player must match two or more cards with the cards drawn.
