Genesee County Woman Wins $1 Million Playing the Michigan Lottery’s Cash Game Instant Game

A Genesee County woman has a retailer to thank for her $1 million Cash Game prize from the Michigan Lottery.

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.
