The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought the winning ticket at Sam’s Party Store, located at 104 South Waverly Road in Lansing.
“As soon as I got in my car and looked at my ticket, I saw I had hit the jackpot,” said the 61-year-old player. “I called my wife to tell her, but I was so serious on the phone she thought something terrible had happen.
“It took a minute for both of us to calm down and realize I’d really won! I don’t even know what to think about it all!”
The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his big prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills, take a trip, and then save the remainder.
