A Tuscola County woman couldn’t help but cry when she won $100,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Vegas Cash Drop instant game online.
“I started out playing Extreme Green online and won $800,” said the 71-year-old player who chose to remain anonymous. “After winning, I wanted to try a different game and decided on Vegas Cash Drop.
“While I was playing a message came up regarding a prize, but I didn’t see how much I’d won at first. When I looked in my account and saw a $100,000 prize pending, I couldn’t help but cry!”
The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. She plans to save her winnings.
