A Wayne County woman is looking forward to living debt free after winning $100,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Football Payout instant game online.
“Road Trip and Football Payout are my two favorite online games and I play them often,” said the lucky player who chose to remain anonymous. “I was playing Road Trip and wasn’t having the best of luck, so I started playing Football Payout instead. When the $100,000 prize came up on my screen, I yelled: ‘No way, this can’t be real!’ It felt unreal when I checked my account balance and saw $100,000 pending.”
The 43-year-old player visited Lottery headquarters recently to claim the big prize. With her winning, she plans to pay bills.
“Winning is such a relief because it is going to allow me to live debt free,” the player said.
