Michigan Lottery: Wayne County woman wins $242K jackpot on fast cash game

By Michigan Lottery

A Wayne County woman is excited to live comfortably after winning a $242,551 jackpot playing the Michigan Lottery’s Jackpot Slots Fast Cash game.

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought her winning ticket at the Redford Party Market, located at 26807 Plymouth Road in Redford.

“I usually buy three fast cash tickets at a time,” said the 65-year-old winner. “I started scanning them right away and one of them said: ‘Must File Ticket Receipt Form at Lottery Office,’ so I thought I won $1,000. I looked over the ticket again and saw I had three of the jackpot symbols, which is when I realized how much I’d won. I couldn’t believe it!”

The player visited Lottery headquarters recently to claim the big prize. With her money, she plans to travel.

“It feels good to win a prize like this. It will allow me to pay bills and live comfortably,” 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.

All of the Fast Cash games feed into one jackpot, which grows with every ticket purchased. The current jackpot amount prints on each ticket, so players always know the amount of the jackpot up for grabs. The jackpot may be won at any time. As soon as the jackpot is hit, a new one starts to grow.
