For the second time in as many weeks, a Michigan Lottery player is looking forward to a lifetime of cash after winning $25,000 a year for life playing Lucky For Life.
A ticket matched the five white balls drawn Sunday night – 05-10-28-45-48 – to win the big prize. The winning ticket was bought at Spirits Shoppe, located at 3550 Gratiot Avenue in Port Huron. This is the fourth time this year – and second time in two weeks – a Michigan player has won a lifetime prize playing Lucky For Life. On May 2, a lucky player also won $25,000 a year for life playing Lucky For Life. That winning ticket was bought at the 7-Eleven store, located at 12990 Fort Street in Southgate.
The lucky winners have two choices to collect the big prizes:
- Annual $25,000 payments for a minimum of 20 years or life, whichever is greater, or
- A one-time lump sum cash payment of $390,000
The lucky winners should contact the Michigan Lottery Player Relations Division at 844-887-6836, option 2 to schedule an appointment to collect the big prizes. The prizes must be claimed at the Lottery’s headquarters in Lansing. Lucky For Life tickets are valid for one year from the drawing date.
For just $2 per play, Lucky For Life gives Lottery players a chance to win prizes ranging from $3 to a lifetime of cash. To win the game’s top prize of $1,000 a day for life, players must match all five winning numbers ranging from 1 to 48, plus one Lucky Ball ranging from 1 to 18. Players who match all five winning numbers, but not the Lucky Ball, will win $25,000 a year for life. Drawings take place at 10:38 p.m. seven days-a-week. Tickets may be purchased at Lottery retailers across the state and online at MichiganLottery.com.
