A woman from Saginaw County couldn’t help but scream when she won $4 million playing the Michigan Lottery’s $200,000,000 Riches instant game.
The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought her winning ticket at Singh’s Market, located at 805 Shattuck Rd. in Saginaw.
“I love playing the $30 games,” the 62-year-old player said. “I purchased my ticket, scratched the barcode, and scanned it. A message came up to file a claim, so I scanned it a second and third time and got the same message.”
“I went out to my car and began scratching the ticket. I revealed the ‘C-A-S-H’ symbol and knew I won big. I slowly scratched the amount and when I revealed the ‘4’ and then ‘M’ I couldn’t help but holler!”
The lucky player visited the Michigan Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. She chose to receive her prize as a one-time lump sum of about $2.5 million rather than annuity payments totaling out to $4 million.
With her winnings, the Michigan Lottery said she plans to purchase a home and then invest the remainder.
