The lucky 30-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased his winning ticket at Murphy USA, located at 859 Edelweiss Parkway in Gaylord.
“I don’t play instant games often, but I do like to buy them here and there,” said the player. “I decided to purchase a Wild Time Deluxe ticket on a whim while I was at the store one day and then scanned it a few days later to check it. When I realized how much I’d won, I was shocked!”
The player visited Lottery headquarters recently to claim his prize. He plans to save his winnings.
Players have won more than $55 million playing Wild Time Deluxe which launched in April 2021. Each $5 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $5 up to $300,000. More than $10 million in prizes remain, including four $25,000 prices and 12 $2,500 prizes.
Lottery instant games may be purchased at any of the 10,500 retailers across the state.
