A Wayne County man’s jaw hit the floor when he won $75,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Cash Buster Towers game online.
“I was up late messing around on my phone and decided to play some Lottery games,” said Kyle Grant, of Wyandotte. “I played a few games of Cash Buster Towers and hit $75,000! My jaw dropped and I sat there for five minutes in stunned silence.
“I sent a text message to my dad and best friend, Joe, but they were both sleeping. I stayed up all night waiting for them to message me back. When they finally did, I had to convince them I wasn’t playing a trick on them.”
The 28-year-old Grant visited Lottery headquarters on Thursday to claim his big prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay some bills and then invest the remainder.
“You play the Lottery for the dream of winning, but I never thought it would be a reality for me. It’s unreal,” Grant said.
