The player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought his winning ticket at the Mobil gas station, located at 31011 Dequindre in Madison Heights.
“I play a little of everything and have never felt as excited as I was when I scratched this winning ticket,” said the 48-year-old player. “I am excited to be able to help my family!”
The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his prize. He chose to receive his prize as a one-time lump sum of about $2.5 million rather than annuity payments totaling $4 million. With his winnings, he plans to pay off debt and help family members.
