$8.75 Million Lotto 47 Jackpot Won; Winning Ticket Bought in Kentwood

Lotto 47A lucky Michigan Lottery player is a millionaire after winning a Lotto 47 jackpot worth $8.75 million Saturday night.

One ticket matched the winning Lotto 47 numbers drawn Saturday: 07-16-18-27-39-40. The winning ticket was bought at Paris Spirits and Wine, located at 2871 East Paris Southeast in Kentwood. Kentwood is about 10 miles southeast of Grand Rapids.

This is the third time the Lotto 47 jackpot has been won in 2023. The Lotto 47 jackpot was last won on April 1 when an Oakland County man won a $4.38 million jackpot.

The $8.75 million jackpot is the ninth largest Lotto 47 jackpot ever won. In November 2020, a $32.3 million Lotto 47 jackpot was won by two lucky players in Ionia and Oakland counties. That jackpot holds the record for the largest Lotto 47 jackpot ever won.

The lucky player should contact the Lottery’s Player Relations division at 844-887-6836, option 2 to setup an appointment to claim their prize. Lotto 47 tickets are valid for one year from the date of the drawing.

Each Lotto 47 play is only $1. Players select six numbers from one to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot starting at $1 million and that grows until someone wins it. For an additional $1 per play, Double Play may be added to a Lotto 47 ticket, giving players a second chance to win up to $1.5 million in the nightly Double Play drawing. For an additional $1 per game, players may add EZMatch to their ticket for a chance to win up to $500 instantly. Lotto 47 drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday at 7:29 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at a retailer or online at MichiganLottery.com until 7:08 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
