An Oakland County man plans to “not worry for a long time” after winning $100,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Football Payout instant game online.
“I love football and I like the multiplier feature, so Football Payout is my favorite game,” said the 57-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous. “I was playing on my phone and saw the $10,000 prize which was great! I didn’t even notice I had a 10X multiplier for a couple minutes!
“Winning this amount is life changing. It means no more debt and that I won’t be worried about money for a long time.”
The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his big prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills, buy a new vehicle, and then save the remainder.
