Battle Creek Store Scores $100 Grand With Lottery Raffle Ticket
Take a look at the Lottery ticket. That's what $100,000 looks like.
A Battle Creek man took a giant gamble, plunked down $50 and bought a Michigan Lottery raffle ticket. That ticket, bought at Harper Creek Shell on B Drive North, was selected as a $100,000 winner.
"I wanted to try my luck at the Super Raffle game, so my wife and I stopped to get a ticket one night," said the player. "The day after the drawing I was checking my raffle numbers online at work. When I realized I was one of the $100,000 winners, I just sat there I awe. I still don't know what to think about it, it doesn't seem real." - Michigan Lottery release.
The 38 year old man has chosen to remain anonymous. He tells Lottery officials he'll pay bills and take his family on a Florida vacation.
The Lottery says "Super Raffle featured the richest payout of any raffle game offered by the Lottery. It offered a top prize of $4 million and two $2 million prizes. Other prizes were: $100,000 (10), $500 (3,300), and $100 (12,000)".
