The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought her winning ticket at the Miller Point Mart, located at G3356 Miller Road in Flint.
“While I was at the store, I asked the clerk to pick some Lottery tickets for me,” said the 47-year-old player. “I was on my lunch break and decided to scratch them before heading back into work. When I realized I’d won $1 million, I thought for sure I was reading the ticket wrong. I couldn’t believe it!”
The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. She chose to receive her prize as a one-time lump sum of about $634,000 rather than annuity payments totaling $1 million. With her winnings, she plans to take her family on vacation and then save the remainder.
Players have won more than $23 million playing Cash Game, which launched in July. Each $10 ticket offered players a chance to win prizes ranging from $10 up to $1 million. More than $27 million in prizes remain, including two $1 million top prizes, 26 $10,000 prizes, and 110 $2,000 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.
