Clinton County Man Wins $125,514 Monthly Jackpot Progressive Prize

Winner graphicA Clinton County man said winning a $125,514 Monthly Jackpot Progressive prize from the Michigan Lottery couldn’t have happened at a better time.

The lucky 49-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, won $125,514 after he was selected in a random drawing that took place Jan. 11. He earned entries into the giveaway by playing the Monthly Jackpot game online at

“I had been playing the Monthly Jackpot game quite a bit, and I knew there was a second chance associated with playing, but I wasn’t sure what the second chance prize was,” said the player. “I got an email and a call from the Lottery one day informing me I’d won the second chance jackpot, and I didn’t think it was real. It still feels surreal and hasn’t sunk in yet.

“I haven’t told my family that I won yet, so I plan to surprise them by showing them the check. This couldn’t have happened at a better time for our family!”

The player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills and take a vacation.
