A Macomb County man sat at his computer stunned after he won $75,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Golden Harvest instant game online.
“I won $500 playing Golden Harvest before, so I decided to give it another try,” said the lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous. “When I saw the ticket hit, I stared at my screen in disbelief. I had to make sure I was seeing $75,000 and not $7,500!”
The lucky player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. With his winnings, he plans to complete some home renovations, take a trip with his wife, and then save the remainder.
“You always hear about big winners, I just never in my wildest dreams imagined I would be one of them, but here I am,” the player said.
