$300,000 instant game ticket sold at White Lake store

Lottery Ticket Michigan

State lottery officials say an Oakland County man couldn’t contain his excitement when he won $300,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Bingo Blockbuster instant game.

The 88-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased his winning ticket at the BP gas station at 8320 Highland Road in White Lake Township.

“I purchased four Bingo tickets while I was at the store and won $50 on them, so I used my winnings to purchase a few more,” said the player. “I scratched the ticket and looked it over, but I wasn’t sure how much I’d won. When I called the Lottery office and they told me my ticket was a $300,000 winner, I started cheering! I couldn’t contain my excitement.”

According to a press release, the player visited Lottery headquarters recently to claim his prize. With his winnings, he plans to take a vacation to Northern Michigan and then save the remainder.
