Kalamazoo Co. Woman Hits Big Money With Michigan Lottery Ticket
Have you ever dreamed of winning the lottery? One Kalamazoo area woman had that dream and it came true when she won $300,000.
I have not been one to play the lottery regularly in any sort of way. Occasionally I'll purchase a Powerball ticket when the payoff is huge. Sometimes around Christmas, I'll pick up a few scratch-off tickets for gifts and even for myself for fun.
I have never been what I consider a lucky person. Actually, I may be more unlucky than anyone I've ever met. I have bought so many new products that were broken from the get-go than anyone I know. I bought a TV one time, and this was back when they weighed as much as a refrigerator, and it took bringing home three before one of them worked properly.
My bad luck has not ever stopped me from dreaming. I even one time wrote down on a piece of paper all the people I would help if I won one of those crazy lottery jackpots.
According to FOX 17, a Kalamazoo County woman's dream of winning the lottery has come true by winning big with the Michigan Lottery's Cashword by cashing in on $300,000 playing Cashword Multiplier.
In case you wondering where the lottery ticket was purchased, it was a Citgo gas station on 5500 W. D. Avenue in Kalamazoo.
The 46-year-old woman wasn't the only person who has won big playing Michigan Lottery's Cashword Multiplier. So far over $15 million has been paid out since the new game launched back in June.
Looks like I have a new scratch-off to try the next time I gas up my truck.
The Michigan Lottery announced that there is still $17 million up for grabs and out of that two of the prizes are $300,000, six $10,000 prizes, and 35 $2000. I did a little math so it looks like there will be $16,270,000 in smaller denominations to win. One ticket costs $5.
