A Flint man had to check his Superstar Cash instant game ticket six times before believing he won One million bucks. That's right; one-million dollars.

The lucky player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, bought his winning ticket at Mr. B’s Supermarket, located at 2510 Fenton in Flint.

“I won $20 on a Cashword ticket early last week and had the money in my pocket,” said the winner. “When I bought my normal Daily 3 and Daily 4 tickets I used the extra $10 to buy a Superstar Cash ticket.

“I don’t usually buy $10 instant game tickets, but the man in front of me at Mr. B’s bought a Superstar Cash ticket and won $10. The man working the counter asked him if he wanted to buy another ticket and he said: ‘No, there’s never two winners in a row.’

“I had a feeling that the next ticket might be lucky, and wow was I right!”

The player visited Lottery headquarters Monday to collect his big prize. He chose to receive his prize as a one-time lump sum payment of $634,517 rather than an annuity. With his winnings, the player said he plans to enjoy camping and attending NASCAR races.

Players have won more than $10.6 million playing Superstar Cash, which debuted in June. Each $10 ticket gives players a chance to win prizes ranging from $10 up to $1 million. More than $37.2 million in prizes remain, including: one $1 million top prize, 33 $10,000 prizes, and 756 $1,000 prizes.

Lottery instant games may be purchased at 11,000 retailers across the state.

In 2015, Lottery players won more than $722.1 million playing instant games.
