Livingston County man wins $1.15 million in Lotto 47 drawing

A Livingston County man is still tryingnto wrap his head around winning a $1.15 million Lotto 47 jackpot from the Michigan Lottery.

The lucky 64-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched the winning Lotto 47 numbers drawn Jan. 7 to win the jackpot: 02-09-20-22-24-39. He bought his winning ticket at the Kroger store, located at 9700 Chilson Commons Circle in Hamburg Township.

“I play Lotto 47 often and I always play my special sets of numbers made up of my kid’s birthdates,” said the player. “I was checking the winning numbers online the day after the drawing, and when I realized I’d won the jackpot, I couldn’t believe it! I called my kids right away to tell them the good news, and they didn’t believe it either. Winning still feels unreal and hasn’t sunk in quite yet.”

The player visited Lottery headquarters recently to claim the big prize. He chose to receive his prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $797,000 rather than annuity payments for the full amount. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills, share with his family, and then save the remainder.

Lotto 47 drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday nights.
