A Kalamazoo County woman is looking forward to a “new beginning” after winning a $161,453 progressive jackpot playing the Michigan Lottery’s Black Jack Fast Cash game.

“It’s hard to describe the feeling of winning. The best way I can sum it up is just that this will give my family a new beginning,” said Linda Buchanan, of Kalamazoo.

She bought her winning ticket at the Town and Country Market, located at 1824 Portage Street in Kalamazoo.

“I work at the Town and Country Market and wanted to be able to help explain the new Black Jack Fast Cash game to customers, so I bought a ticket,” said Buchanan. “I don’t really play Black Jack myself, so I asked my boss to help me read the ticket. After he realized what I had, he said: ‘You just paid off your house and cars for $5!’”

Buchannan, 40, visited Lottery headquarters on Tuesday to claim her big prize. With her winnings, she indeed plans to pay off her house, cars, and then save the remainder.

Fast Cash games are a series of instant-win games that print from terminals at Lottery retailers. Fast Cash tickets range in price from $1 per play up to $10 per play, and feature popular game themes, including Cashword and Wild Time.

Fast Cash games also offer a progressive jackpot that can be won instantly. Every Fast Cash ticket gives players a chance to win all or part of the progressive jackpot.

All of the Fast Cash games feed into one jackpot, which grows with every ticket purchased. The current jackpot amount prints on each ticket, so players always will know the amount of the jackpot up for grabs. The jackpot may be won at any time. As soon as the jackpot is hit, a new one starts again.
