If you could change $10 into $1 million by scratching a card, would you do it? Of course, everyone would agree to this, but the odds are unlikely that everyone would become a winner.
One lucky Michigan Lottery player, however, was able to do just that. The winner, who remains anonymous, recently scratched their Ruby Mine lottery ticket arguably for the last time.
They were able to win the $1 million jackpot in the city of Ann Arbor, Mich. The retailer was the House of Liquor.
For a scratch-off instant win game, Ruby Mine is one of the easier games to play offered by the Michigan Lottery. As straightforward as it is, you simply scratch and see if you win, without really having to line up a ton of prize symbols or play different parts of the ticket to see if you win.
You begin, of course, by scratching and revealing symbols. If you happen to reveal three matching symbols within the same game, you will win the prize for that game. Below you will see the multiplier options:
Make sure to keep up with the number of Ruby symbols that have been revealed in games 1-20. After you count them, look at the prize legend to see what prize you have won:
The overall odds of winning a prize for this game are one in 3.78. To increase your chances of winning, you can simply purchase another ticket.
Keep in mind the costs for each ticket will be $10. This will factor into how many times you should be able to play, as you do not want to spend all of your money.
The following are the prizes available for this game:
There were three total jackpot prizes available at the start of this game. Since then, there have been two jackpot winners, so now there is only one remaining out there.
In addition, there are still nine $20,000 prizes remaining as well.
