Woman From Macomb County Wins $4M On Scratch Off Lottery Ticket

(CBS DETROIT) - A woman from Macomb County won $4 million after playing Michigan Lottery $4,000,000 CA$H instant game.

The 75-year-old player bought her winning ticket at the Kroger Store, located at 26233 Hoover Road in Warren.

"I decided to purchase a Lottery ticket while I was out getting groceries," said the player. "I didn't see any winnings on the ticket when I scratched it, but I scanned it at the store to be sure. When I got a message to file a claim, I looked the ticket over a second time and that's when I realized I'd won $4 million. I couldn't believe it!"

She chose to receive her prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $2.5 million rather than 30 annuity payments for the full amount.

The player plans to save her winnings.
