Flint Woman Wins $500,000 on MSL Instant Win Ticket
A Flint woman says she is going to Disney World after winning $500,000 playing the Michigan Lottery's Casino Riches instant game.
"After scratching the ticket, I thought I lost," said the winner, who chose to remain anonymous. "I decided to have my boyfriend double check it when he went to the store.
She tells the Michigan State Lottery she didn't believe her boyfriend when he called to give her the big news.
"After he scanned it, he called me and told me the ticket was a $500,000 winner. At first, I thought he was kidding. When I realized I had actually won, I felt numb."
The 33-year-old player bought her winning ticket at the Mobil gas station, located at 1374 West Bristol Road in Flint.
The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters Monday to collect her winnings which she plans to use to take her family on a trip to Disney World. After that, she says she plans to invest the rest.
