The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought her winning ticket at Purk’s, located at 875 East Lincoln in Ionia.
“It didn’t feel real when I scratched the ticket off, and it doesn’t feel real now,” said the player. “I can’t believe I won $300,000!”
The lucky 60-year-old player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. With her winnings, she plans to help family and then invest the remainder.
