There is no time like the holidays to close out the year on a positive note. For one lucky Michigan Lottery player, they will definitely ring in the new year in a joyful mood.
The player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, recently played a Lucky For Life game in the city of Carleton at a Circle K convenience store. The player was able to win big by claiming the top cash prize of $390,000.
Win Up To: $1,000 A Day For Life
Ticket Cost: $2.00
Drawing Schedule: Monday and Thursday at 10:35 p.m.
Overall Odds: 1 in 8
When you have your ticket available, think about five white ball numbers between 1 to 48. Then, you must select a single Lucky Ball number that ranges from 1 to 18. If you like those numbers, you can play up to 10 panels per ticket and play up to 30 consecutive drawings with those same selected numbers. After choosing your numbers, take the ticket to the retailer for purchase, or you can buy online with your Michigan Lottery account.
Keep watch for the drawing results on TV, or if you have the Michigan Lottery app, you can do so there as well. Their online website will also have up to date information. If these numbers suit you, make sure you keep the ticket handy when you go back to the lottery retailer. You can use those same numbers and have the clerk reprint them for a new ticket without having to do any extra work.
The jackpot in this game consists of five White Balls and the Lucky Ball. They have odds of 1 in 30,821,472. In general play, the overall odds of winning a single prize are 1 in 8.
If you would like to increase your chances of winning, the only thing in your power is that you can purchase an additional ticket. With that in mind, watch out for ticket costs when you want to play more, as each game will cost two dollars.
If you happen to win big, just like the winner above did, you have the $1,000/Day for Life and $25,000/Year for Life options. Those options will pay over your lifetime or 20 years, whichever is greater. However, as the player did above, you can also cash out within 60 days from the date you choose to claim their prize.
