Two lucky Michigan Lottery players hit the big time recently. The wins came from playing The Big Spin and the Second Chance Progressive Jackpot.
$1 million Jackpot for Wayne County Player
A fortunate Wayne County player knocked one out of the park, scoring a $1 million jackpot playing The Big Spin. The winner, a 48-year-old woman who wished to remain anonymous, purchased the winning ticket at a local Michigan Lottery retail location on Ecorse Road in Taylor.
The fortuitous win resulted from an unexpected urge to buy a lottery ticket. The winner explained she had been watching television at home when she felt compelled to buy a ticket. Her lucky feeling paid off handsomely. After scratching off the numbers, the incredible $1 million jackpot appeared on the ticket.
The winner visited the Michigan Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. She opted for a one-time lump-sum prize of $693,000 instead of 30 annual payments for the total sum. The fortunate player plans to purchase a home and tuck the rest away.
Michigan Lottery players have scored $13 million in prizes playing The Big Spin. With over $58 million in remaining prizes, The Big Spin offers plenty of opportunities to win.
$400,000 Second Chance Progressive Jackpot Score
Wayne County has been at the forefront of lucky Michigan Lottery winners. A 61-year-old woman bagged $403,618 playing the Second Chance Progressive Jackpot.
The anonymous player indicated that she had been selected in a random drawing on February 8. She earned her entry in the giveaway promotions by playing the Monthly Jackpot game available online at MichiganLottery.com.
The fortunate winner indicated she had forgotten her entries after playing so often. Then, she got an unexpected email notifying her that she had won the progressive jackpot. Her Michigan Lottery account confirmed the wonderful news.
The winner visited the Michigan Lottery headquarters to collect her winnings. She plans to take a vacation with the prize money, share some with her family, and invest the rest of her winnings.
The Monthly Jackpot, Mystery Vault, and Lucky Start online games accumulate entries for the second chance progressive jackpot. Entries can be selected at drawings. Players can accumulate entries for every $0.50 bet on eligible games.
A winner is selected each month for the progressive jackpot. Keep in mind that the progressive jackpot amount varies from month to month.
