74-year-old St. Clair County woman wins $ 361,000 lottery jackpot; call it a “gift from God”

LANSING, MI – A 74-year-old St. Clair County woman says someone is looking after her after winning a jackpot of $ 361,184 playing the Michigan Lottery Slots Fast Cash jackpot.

“Winning an award like this feels like a gift from God,” said the winner, who chose to remain anonymous.

She bought her ticket at the Deluxe Party Store, located at 69209 North Main Street in Richmond. However, after buying the ticket, she thought something was wrong with the lottery machine because she saw a message that she had never seen before.

“I really enjoy playing the Fast Cash games and I generally play the Jackpot Slots game,” said the player. “I scanned the ticket right after I bought it and a message popped up saying I had to go to a lottery office. I thought the machine was broken so I called one of the employees who told me the message meant I had won big.

“When I asked him how much I won, he looked at the ticket and said, ‘The jackpot!’ We were both so excited we couldn’t believe it.

The woman went to the lottery headquarters in Lansing to claim her prize. With her earnings, she plans to buy a new car and help her family.

The latest Michigan player to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot is the Wolverine FLL lottery club which won a jackpot of $ 1.05 billion in March. With their earnings, the group plans to give back to the community.

And while they were lucky winners, it makes sense for players to check their tickets immediately, as a winner worth $ 1 million sold to Hartland in 2019 has not been claimed. The ticket was purchased at Hartland Speedway, but the winner never showed up to claim the prize. Instead, the money went to the State Educational Assistance Fund.
