Wayne County with some extra cash won a $5.42 million Lotto 47 prize.
To win the top prize, the winner had to match all six of the numbers
selected in the drawing held on September 28: 2, 5, 14, 30, 32, and 42.
The anonymous 69-year-old winner purchased his ticket from the Michigan Lottery website
The winning ticket is the second-largest reward ever won by an internet ticket buyer,
behind just two previous players who won $5.75 million grand prizes
while playing the Lucky for Life game. Recently, the winner went to the Lottery headquarters
in Lansing to pick up his award. Instead of the annuity, he chose to receive the funds
as a one-time lump sum payment of around $3.8 million.
He intends to pay his debts out of his profits and save the rest.
