The drawing comes during a string of big lottery wins in the state. Two weeks ago, a Grand Rapids woman claimed a $5 million prize that she only realized she’d won by scrolling through Facebook.

The week prior, a Washtenaw County man expected to only win $20 playing an instant game, but was shocked to learn he won $1 million.

That win came around the same time a Wayne County man won $2 million playing an instant ticket on Thanksgiving. The man says he has plenty to be thankful for now and will use the money to help family and charity.

The last players from Michigan to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot were a couple from Suttons Bay who came forward to claim an $80 million Powerball win. That couple plans on using the money to support their family of seven kids and 21 grandkids.

And while they were lucky winners, it’s smart for players to check their tickets immediately as a winner worth $1 million sold in Hartland last year went unclaimed. The ticket was purchased at the Speedway in Hartland, but the winner never came forward to claim the prize. The money instead went to the state’s School Aid Fund.

The author of “Learn How To Increase Your Chances Of Winning The Lottery” has won more than $1 million in Florida by winning top jackpot prizes in smaller game.
