LANSING, MI — A 19-year-old man from Lenawee County couldn’t believe his luck after he won a $1 million jackpot playing the Michigan Lottery’s Millionaire Maker instant game. And as blown away as he was by the win, his family was even more skeptical when he first revealed the big win.

“I scratched the ticket in the store and I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” said the player who chose to remain anonymous. “I must have called my mom 90 times before I got through to her and then she wouldn’t believe me. My family thought I was joking until they saw the ticket for themselves!”

The lucky winner bought his ticket at the Lowry Grocery Store, located at 932 East Beecher Street in Adrian. He elected to receive his prize as a one-time lump-sum payment of $634,000, rather than annuity. With his winnings, he plans on investing his money.

The last player from Michigan to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot was Cristy Davis of Waterford who won $70 million playing Powerball in February. With her winnings, Davis said she planned to buy a new house and car.

And while she was a lucky winner, it’s smart for players to check their tickets immediately as a winner worth $1 million sold in Hartland last year went unclaimed. The ticket was purchased at the Speedway in Hartland, but the winner never came forward to claim the prize. The money instead went to the state’s School Aid Fund.

If you’d like to be the next player from Michigan to win a huge lottery prize, take a look at these tips from lottery expert Richard Lustig. The author of “Learn How To Increase Your Chances Of Winning The Lottery” has won more than $1 million in Florida by winning top jackpot prizes in smaller games.

Michigan Lottery: 19-year-old man wins $1M on scratch off ticket

A 19-year-old Lenawee County man’s future is looking bright after he won $1 million playing the Michigan Lottery’s Millionaire Maker instant game.

The player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought his winning ticket at the Lowry Grocery Store, located at 932 East Beecher Street in Adrian.

“I scratched the ticket in the store and I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” said the player. “I must have called my mom 90 times before I got through to her and then she wouldn’t believe me. My family thought I was joking until they saw the ticket for themselves!”

The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. He chose to receive his prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $634,000, rather than annuity payments for the full amount. He plans to invest his winnings.

Players have won more than $62 million playing Millionaire Maker, which launched in April 2019. Each $20 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $40 up to $1 million. More than $36 million in prizes remain, including four $1 million top prizes and 11 $5,000 prizes.

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

In 2019, Lottery players won more than $1.2 billion playing instant games.
