A Kalamazoo County woman waited years, but her dream of winning big playing Cashword finally came true when she won $300,000 playing Cashword Multiplier.
The lucky player bought her winning ticket at the Citgo gas station, located at 5500 West D Avenue in Kalamazoo.
“Years ago, I had a dream that I won $25,000 playing Cashword,” said the 46-year-old player. “I never, ever thought I would actually hit this big, but it’s a great feeling!
“I don’t know anyone who has won big on a Lottery game, so I never really thought it actually happened. I sure am glad I was wrong!”
The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. With her winnings, she is going to buy a new home and then invest the remainder.
Players have won more than $15 million playing Cashword Multiplier, which launched in June. Each $5 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $5 up to $300,000. More than $17 million in prizes remain, including two $300,000 top prizes, six $10,000 prizes, and 35 $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.
