Macomb County Woman Wins $500,000 Playing the Michigan Lottery’s 10X Cashword Instant Game

A Macomb County woman got more than she expected on payday when she won $500,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s 10X Cashword instant game.

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought her winning ticket at the Speedway gas station, located at 67371 Gratiot Avenue in Richmond.

“On payday, I always buy a $10 Cashword,” said the 47-year-old player. “On this particular payday, I also had a $10 coupon from the Cashword second chance game that I used to buy the ticket.

“I scratched it off and checked it 15 times. I even wrote all of the words down on a piece of paper and asked my daughter to double check my work.”

The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. With her winnings, she plans to buy a new home.

Players have won more than $6 million playing 10X Cashword, which launched in April. Each $10 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $10 up to $500,000. More than $38 million in prizes remain, including two $500,000 top-prizes and 19 $1,000 prizes.

Lottery instant games may be purchased at 10,500 retailers across the state.

In 2020, Lottery players won more than $1.5 billion playing instant games.
