Instant ticket bought in Highland Twp. wins woman $500,000

An Oakland County woman is still in shock after winning $500,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Hit $500,000 instant game.

The lucky 51-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased her winning ticket at Spring Valley Party Store, located at 2823 East Highland Road in Highland.

“I play all of the Lottery games, but I especially like playing instant tickets,” said the player. “My friend went into the store and bought the ticket for me, and I scratched it when he got back to the car. When we saw the prize amount, we didn’t believe it was real. I took the ticket back into the store to have it checked. When the cashier confirmed the amount, I couldn’t believe it! I am still in shock.”

The player visited Lottery headquarters recently to claim her prize. With her winnings, she plans to pay bills and vacation.

Players have won more than $14 million playing Hit $500,000 which launched in December.

In 2021, Lottery players won more than $1.8 billion playing instant games.
