Cheboygan County Man Wins $1 Million Playing the Michigan Lottery’s Luck Instant Game

TicketA Cheboygan County man has had “sleepless nights” since he won $1 million playing the Michigan Lottery’s Luck instant game.

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought the winning ticket at the Indian River E-Z Mart, located at 4524 Straits Highway in Cheboygan.

“I bought two tickets and lost on the first one,” said the 44-year-old player. “When I started scratching the second ticket, the last thing I thought would happen was winning $1 million. When I revealed the winning symbol, I was more surprised than I have been in my entire life.

“I shared the news with my wife right away, and we’ve had a lot of sleepless night since. When I do sleep, all I can do is dream of what I will do with the money!”

The player visited Lottery headquarters recently to claim the prize. He chose to receive her prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $693,000, rather than 30 annuity payments for the full amount. With his winnings, the player plans to pay bills, and then save the remainder.

Players have won more than $9.7 million playing Luck, which launched in June. Each $10 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $10 up to $1 million. More than $38.8 million in prizes remain, including two $1 million top prizes and 18 $2,000 prizes.

In 2022, Lottery players won more than $1.7 billion playing instant games.

Lottery instant games may be purchased at any of the 10,500 retailers across the state.
