Lotto 47 jackpot winner of $1.43 million purchased ticket in Warren
What a difference a day can make.
A Michigan Lottery player is a millionaire after winning the $1.43 million Lotto 47 jackpot Wednesday night.
One ticket matched the winning Lotto 47 numbers drawn last night: 07-12-19-30-43-47. It was bought at the Shell gas station, at 3950 East 10 Mile Rd., in Warren.
A week before Christmas was the last time someone won the Lotto 47 jackpot. The lucky winner then was a woman from Wayne County. Her prize was $1.52 million.
The lucky player should contact the Lottery’s Player Relations division at 844-887-6836, option 2 to set up an appointment to claim their prize. Lotto 47 tickets are valid for one year from the date of the drawing.
Each Lotto 47 play is only $1. Players select six numbers from one to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot starting at $1 million and that grows until someone wins it. For an additional $1 per play, Double Play may be added to a Lotto 47 ticket, giving players a second chance to win up to $1.5 million in the nightly Double Play drawing. For an additional $1 per game, players may add EZMatch to their ticket for a chance to win up to $500 instantly. Lotto 47 drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday at 7:29 p.m.
Tickets may be purchased at a retailer or online at MichiganLottery.com until 7:08 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
More than 97 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to vendors and retailers. In the 2020 fiscal year, the Lottery provided nearly $1.18 billion for Michigan’s public schools, its sixth record contribution in a row. Since it began in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $24.5 billion to support public education in Michigan.
