A Bay County man was jumping for joy when he won $300,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Wild Time Deluxe instant game.
The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought his winning ticket at CB Discount, located at 1500 Broadway Street in Bay City.
“I purchased some tickets and had my wife scratch them off,” said the player. “When she scratched the $300,000 amount, she didn’t believe it was true, so she had me look the ticket over to be sure. We started jumping up and down we were so excited. It was a great feeling.”
The lucky 58-year-old player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills and invest.
Players have won more than $14 million playing Wild Time Deluxe, which launched in April. Each $5 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $5 up to $300,000. More than $18 million in prizes remain, including one $300,000 top-prize, five $25,000 prizes and 15 $2,500 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.
