It’s a dream come true for a Clinton County woman who won $2 million playing the Lotto 47 game after she matched all six numbers drawn -- 01-17-32-33-44-46 on January, 17, 2018.
"When we woke up on Friday morning, we still couldn't believe we'd won," said the player's husband. "I looked at her and said: 'Did you have a dream we won $2 million too?'"
The lucky lottery winner opted to remain anonymous. She purchased her winning lottery ticket at the Quality Dairy store, located at 10850 West M-21 in Fowler.
"My husband likes to play Mega Millions and Powerball, but I started playing Lotto 47 about a year ago because the odds of winning are better," said the player. "It really paid off for me!
"I bought my ticket Wednesday afternoon at QD, and then checked it the next morning when I got to work. I was so shaky when I saw I matched all the numbers. I texted my husband to tell him the good news, and he couldn't believe me. It was all so surreal."
The 40-year-old winner claimed her prize at the Michigan Lottery headquarters and chose to receive her prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $1.3 million, instead of receiving 30 annuity payments.
The couple told lottery officials that they have plans to use some of the money to put towards a retirement account and creating memories with their children.
