Big Ca$h JackpotA Wayne County man is planning to head to Ford Field to watch the Detroit Lions this fall after winning a $234,333 BIG CA$H second chance jackpot prize from the Michigan Lottery.

The 38-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, won $234,333 after he was selected in a random drawing that took place May 2. He earned entries into the giveaway by playing the eligible BIG CA$H Second Chance Jackpot games online at MichiganLottery.com.

“I saw an email from the Lottery, so I opened it and read that I’d won $234,333,” said the player. “I immediately thought to myself: ‘This has got to be a scam.’ I called the Lottery to confirm and then I matched the phone number in the email with what was on the Michigan Lottery website, and that’s when I knew it was real! This all still feels surreal.”

The lucky player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim his prize. With his winnings, he plans to buy Detroit Lions game tickets and take a vacation.

Part of every purchase of the games funds one progressive jackpot prize which is awarded in a second chance drawing each month.
