A lucky Michigan Lottery player who bought a Lotto 47 ticket in Wayne County is millionaire after winning the game’s $1.97 million jackpot.
The winning ticket matched all six Lotto 47 numbers drawn last night: 24-26-28-33-38-46. The winning ticket was bought at the Marathon gas station, located at 25337 Warren Street in Dearborn Heights.
Lotto 47 has been one of the hottest games for players in 2016. Including last night’s jackpot winner, players have won eight jackpots amounting to nearly $14.1 million.
The lucky ticket holder from Wednesday’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.
