Few things give a more satisfying feeling than winning a Win For Life top prize of $1,000 a week for life. However, this is exactly what happened to a lucky 50-year-old MI Lottery player from Wayne County.

Winning Ticket - Anonymous Wayne County Man Wins $1,000 A Week For Life Playing MI Lottery’s Win For Life Instant GameThis anonymous winner bought the winning ticket at Bottles N Stuff, located at 15365 Newburgh Road in Livonia.

“My wife and I made a last-second decision to stop for Mega Millions tickets,” said the player. “While I was inside buying those, I asked the clerk what $2 instant tickets he had that were lucky. He suggested the Win For Life game, so I bought 10.

“When we got home my wife and I started scratching. I looked over at her at one point and she was white as a ghost. She kept repeating: ‘We won for life!’ At first, I didn’t believe her, but then I noticed she was shaking and I knew we won something big.”

The 50-year-old winner and his wife recently visited Michigan Lottery headquarters in Lansing to claim the life-changing $1,000 a week for life prize. He chose to receive the prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $1.1 million rather than annual payments of $52,000 for 20 years or life, whichever is greater.

With his winnings, the lucky couple plans to buy a fishing boat, help the family, and save the rest for retirement.
