Muskegon County Woman Wins $1 Million Playing the Michigan Lottery’s Millionaire Maker II Instant Game

A Muskegon County woman couldn’t believe her eyes after winning $1 million playing the Michigan Lottery’s Millionaire Maker II instant game.

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought her winning ticket at the Wesco gas station, located at 1025 East Pontaluna Road in Spring Lake. Spring Lake is about 10 miles South of Muskegon.

“I like to play all kinds of Lottery games and decided on the new Millionaire Maker II game while I was at the store” said the 78-year-old player. “When I realized I’d won $1 million, I couldn’t believe it! I had my friend look the ticket over to make sure it was real.”

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. She plans to save her winnings.

Players have won more than $11 million playing Millionaire Maker II, which launched in September. Each $20 ticket offered players a chance to win prizes ranging from $40 up to $1 million. More than $89 million in prizes remain, including nine $1 million top prizes, 26 $5,000 prizes, and 1,613 $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.
