A Washtenaw County man had a long night after getting an email that he won a $100,000 prize playing the Michigan Lottery’s $300,000,000 Diamond Riches Second Chance game.

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, won $100,000 after he was selected in a random drawing that took place on Aug. 31. He earned entries into the giveaway by scanning non-winning $300,000,000 Diamond Riches tickets on the Michigan Lottery app.

“I received a call from a number I didn’t recognize, so I didn’t answer it and it slipped my mind,” said the 56-year-old player. “Later that night, I was checking my email and saw a message from the Lottery saying that I had won $100,000. As soon as I saw that, I remembered the mysterious call and listened to the message that was left.

“I am not sure I got an hour of sleep that night, I was so excited that I had won. First thing the next morning, I called the Lottery to schedule my appointment to claim the prize!”

The player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. He plans to save his winnings.

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. Four 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

Players can visit MichiganLottery.com/DiamondRiches for complete game rules and drawing dates. The next drawing is scheduled for October 12.
