The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, won $100,000 after she was selected in a random drawing that took place on September 14. She earned entries into the giveaway by scanning her non-winning $300,000,000 Diamond Riches tickets on the Michigan Lottery app.
“I saw an email from the Lottery telling me I had won a $100,000 prize, and I thought it was a scam,” said the player. “I called the Lottery to make sure it was just a scam email, and when they told me I’d really won, I started shouting and crying! This prize couldn’t have come at a better time.”
The 36-year-old player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. With her winnings, she plans to pay bills and purchase a new car.
Each non-winning $300,000,000 Diamond Riches ticket is eligible for a second chance to win a prize ranging from $500 up to $100,000. Players can enter by scanning their non-winning tickets on the Michigan Lottery mobile app ticket scanner by Nov. 13, 2022. Five more second chance drawings will be conducted. Each drawing will award:
- One winner of $100,000
- Five winners of $10,000
- Twenty winners of $1,000
- Sixty winners of $500
