“I was checking out the Mega Millions jackpot on MichiganLottery.com last week when I saw you could play games online,” said the player, who chose to remain anonymous. “I deposited $20 in my account and started playing Cash Buster Bonus.
“After a couple plays, I won $100,000! I didn’t know what to do at first, I kept thinking: ‘This can’t be real!’ I decided to wake my wife up and she was skeptical. It took my about 30 minutes to convince her I’d won!
“Winning feels like a fresh start for my family. We can pay off our house and some other bills and be more comfortable now. We caught a big break and it will give us some much needed relief.”
The 29-year-old player visited Lottery headquarters recently to claim the big prize. After paying off his home and paying bills, the player plans to save the remainder of his prize.
