A Washtenaw County man is still processing winning $100,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Football Payout instant game online.
“I enjoy playing online and took a break from work and decided to play,” said the 37-year-old player. “Football Payout is my favorite game, so I decided to give it a try.
“I had played for a bit and had about $100 left in my account. I decided to play a couple more times and that’s when I hit for $100,000! It’s hard to describe winning because it doesn’t feel real at all!”
The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his big prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills and then save the remainder.
