A St. Clair County woman is looking forward to fulfilling her dream of starting a business after winning a $100,000 prize playing the $6,000,000 Jackpot second chance game.
The 44-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, won $100,000 after she was selected in a random drawing that took place on March 31. She earned entries into the giveaway by scanning non-winning $6,000,000 Jackpot tickets on the Michigan Lottery app.
“When I saw an email informing me I’d won a $100,000 top prize in the $6,000,000 Jackpot second chance drawing, I was confused,” said the player. “It seemed too good to be true and I assumed it was a scam email.
“Shortly after seeing the email, I got a call from the Lottery informing me of the prize and I was shocked! That’s when I knew it was real, so I called my son right away to tell him the good news.”
The player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. With her winnings, she plans to start a business.
“I am so grateful to have won this prize because it will allow me to finally fulfill my dream of starting my own business,” the player said.
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. Six 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
