MI (STL.News) A Mason County man plans to help his family after winning a $380,430 Diamond Wild Time Progressive Fast Cash jackpot from the Michigan Lottery.
The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought his winning ticket at the Meijer gas station, located at 3900 West US Highway 10 in Ludington.
“I usually buy a few Fast Cash tickets at a time,” said the 58-year-old player. “I take them home, put them face down on the table, and then my wife and I each grab a few to check over. When I flipped this one over, I saw the jackpot prize right away and immediately felt anxious, nervous, and excited all in one.”
The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his big prize. He plans to use his winnings to pay bills, help his family, and as a cushion for retirement.
“It feels surreal to win a Lottery jackpot prize,” said the player. “You never think that you will actually win, but now that I have, it’s unbelievable.”
Fast Cash games are a series of instant-win games that print from terminals at Lottery retailers. Fast Cash tickets range in price from $2 per play up to $20 per play.
