Michigan Lottery: Macomb County man wins $1.3M on Fast Cash game

By Michigan Lottery

LANSING, Mich. - A lucky hunch led to a Macomb County man winning $1.3 million playing the Doubler Wild Time Progressive Fast Cash game.

“I play the Lottery about once a week,” said the lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous. “The person in front of me in line bought a Fast Cash ticket and I just had a feeling it was a lucky game, so I decided to play.”

The 83-year-old player bought his winning $10 ticket at the Village Market, located at 28510 Harper Avenue in St. Clair Shores.

“My wife and I ran some errands and when we got home, I looked at the ticket,” said the player. “I kept looking at the ticket to make sure I was seeing it right. I couldn’t believe it.”

The player visited Lottery headquarters on Monday to claim the big prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills, do something nice for himself, and then save the remainder.

“Winning feels great and means a comfortable retirement for my wife and me,” the player said.

Fast Cash games are a series of instant-win games that print from terminals at Lottery retailers. Fast Cash tickets range in price from $1 per play up to $20 per play.
