Macomb County Man Wins $100,000 Playing the Michigan Lottery’s $6,000,000 Jackpot Second Chance Game

Winner graphicIt only took one entry into the $6,000,000 Jackpot second chance game for a Macomb County man to win $100,000!

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, won $100,000 after he was selected in a random drawing that took place on Jan. 12. He earned entries into the giveaway by scanning non-winning $6,000,000 Jackpot tickets on the Michigan Lottery app.

“I got an email that seemed really fishy at first,” said the 49-year-old player. “As I read it, I decided to check my Lottery account to see if it said anything about the drawing. When I logged in, I checked my entries and confirmed that I had one for the drawing.

“That’s when I decided to call the number listed in the email. As I talked to the woman, it started to sink in that I had really won $100,000! Even sitting here right now, it’s so hard to believe!”

The player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. With his winnings, he plans to complete some home renovations.

Each non-winning $6,000,000 Jackpot ticket is eligible for a second chance to win a prize ranging from $500 up to $100,000. Players may enter by scanning their non-winning tickets on the Michigan Lottery mobile app ticket scanner by Sept. 1, 2023. Eight 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 for complete game rules and drawing dates. The next drawing is scheduled for March 2.
