A Macomb County man plans to help his family after winning $4 million playing the Michigan Lottery’s Ultimate Millions instant game.
The player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought his winning ticket at the Mobil gas station, located at 31011 Dequindre in Madison Heights.
“I play a little of everything and have never felt as excited as I was when I scratched this winning ticket,” said the 48-year-old player. “I am excited to be able to help my family!”
The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his prize. He chose to receive his prize as a one-time lump sum of about $2.5 million rather than annuity payments totaling $4 million. With his winnings, he plans to pay off debt and help family members.
