A Muskegon woman went to see the wizard and won $75,000 from the Michigan Lottery.
Judy Field-Lampman, 68, won the big prize playing the Lottery’s Wizard of All online instant game.
“When I revealed the symbols, I couldn’t believe I had matched the green gem to win $75,000,” said Field-Lampman. “I looked the ticket over several more times to make sure I was reading everything right.
“I called for my husband so he could double check what I was seeing, and he was just as stunned as I was. It wasn’t until I saw the prize listed as ‘pending’ in my Lottery account that I knew it was real.”
Field-Lampman visited Lottery headquarters today to claim her big prize. With her winnings she plans to pay some bills, take a trip out West, and buy a new truck.
