Waterford Woman Wins $559,200 Monthly Jackpot Progressive Prize

Shannon MolinaA Waterford woman was brought to tears when she learned she’d won a $559,200 Monthly Jackpot Progressive prize from the Michigan Lottery.

Shannon Molina, 47, won $559,200 after she was selected in a random drawing that took place June 14. She earned entries into the giveaway by playing the eligible Monthly Jackpot games online at MichiganLottery.com.

“When I got the call that I had won the Monthly Jackpot Progressive, I thought it was a joke,” said Molina. “I talked to the woman from the Lottery three times before I started to believe it was real. The last time I spoke to her, she setup my appointment to come claim the prize in Lansing and that’s when it hit me that it must be real.”

Molina recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim her big prize. With her winnings she plans to buy a new home, pay bills, and then save the remainder.

“Life hasn’t always been easy. Winning means we can be debt free and get a fresh start in a new home. It’s such a blessing,” Molina said.

Select online instant games include a second chance progressive jackpot drawing. Part of every purchase of the games funds one progressive jackpot prize which is awarded in a second chance drawing each month. Players earn one entry for every $0.50 wagered playing the eligible games. After the entry period has closed, a random drawing takes place with one jackpot winner being selected from all entries for that month.
