Muskegon County Man Wins $300,000 Playing the Michigan Lottery’s Royal VIP Instant Game Online

A Muskegon County man said winning $300,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Royal VIP online instant game is still sinking in.

“A few of my friends have been playing Royal VIP lately, which is how I found out about the game,” said the lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous. “I got up early one morning to let my dog out and decided to play a few games of Royal VIP before starting my day.

“I won $700 within a few minutes of playing and was happy with that. A few minutes later, I won again, but I thought I’d only won $300 at first. When I realized I had actually won $300,000, I didn’t think it was real. It wasn’t until I saw my account balance with instructions on claiming the prize that I knew I had really won. It was such a shock and is still sinking in!”

The 40-year-old player visited Lottery headquarters recently to claim the big prize. He plans to save his winnings.
