The Michigan Lottery shared online that the winning scratch-off ticket was bought at Vanderbilt Downtown EZ Mart, located at 8114 Mill Street in Vanderbilt.

How Was The Winning Ticket Purchased

The scratch-off winner who chose to remain anonymous told the Michigan Lottery about how they won.

I heard about the new $50 ticket and told my friend I was going to buy one on payday. I didn’t think I would actually win the top prize, but I still wanted to try it. We stopped at the store on the way to work so that I could buy one and I scratched it when I got in my car. When I saw I had won the $6 million prize, I started shaking and showed my friend. We were both freaking out!
