The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought his winning ticket at the Rogers City E-Z Mart, located at 101 South Bradley Highway in Rogers City.

“I wish I had won this when I was 20 years younger,” said the player, who is in his eighties. “Better late than never!”

The player visited Lottery headquarters Monday to claim his prize. He plans to save his windfall for a rainy day.
