Christmas came a little early for a lucky Michigan Lottery player who won a $3.73 million Lotto 47 jackpot.
The winning ticket matched all six Lotto 47 numbers drawn Saturday: 01-02-07-08-11-26. The winning ticket was bought at the Sunoco gas station, located at 763 South Michigan Avenue in Howell.
Saturday’s jackpot win marks the seventh time the game’s jackpot has been won in 2018. Lotto 47 jackpot winners have won more than $21 million in 2018.
The lucky ticket holder from Saturday’s drawing should contact the Lottery’s Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to make an appointment to claim the prize at the Lottery headquarters in Lansing. Lotto 47 tickets are valid for one year from the drawing date.
Each Lotto 47 play is only $1. Players select six numbers from one to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot starting at $1 million and grows until someone wins it. For an additional $1 per game, players may add EZMatch to their ticket for a chance to win up to $500 instantly. Lotto 47 drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday at 7:29 p.m. Tickets may be purchased until 7:08 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
