LANSING, Mich. – A Wayne County man has won $2 million in the Lotto 47 jackpot from the Michigan Lottery.

The man, who chose to remain anonymous, matched all six Lotto 47 numbers drawn Wednesday: 24-26-28-33-38-46.

He bought his winning ticket at the Marathon gas station, located at 25337 Warren Street in Dearborn Heights.

The player visited Lottery headquarters on Friday to claim his prize. He chose to take a one-time lump sum payment of about $1.2 million rather than an annuity. He told lottery officials he is still deciding on how to spend his windfall.

Each Lotto 47 play is $1. Players select six numbers from one to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot starting at $1 million and that grows until someone wins it. For an additional $1 per game, players may add EZMatch to their ticket for a chance to win up to $500 instantly.

Lotto 47 drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday at 7:29 p.m. Tickets may be purchased until 7:08 p.m. on the day of the drawing.

Wednesday’s Lotto 47 jackpot is $1.05 million.
