Kentwood woman claims $1 million Mega Millions prize from Michigan Lottery
Drawing Date: 5/20/2014
May 22, 2014 –Walt Disney World and Miami better be ready, because Michigan’s latest millionaire is headed to the Sunshine State for a visit.
Cynthia Posey, of Kentwood, claimed her Mega Millions prize of $1 million at the Michigan Lottery’s headquarters in Lansing today. She matched the first five numbers – 10-40-63-64-69 – in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing with a ticket she bought at the Mother Hubbard Party Store in Kentwood.
Posey learned she won the big prize after checking her ticket with the Lottery’s mobile app. She was shocked to see she had matched the five numbers and had to check her ticket a few times before calling a friend to share the good news.
With her winnings, the 61-year-old Posey plans to purchase a new home and car, plus take a trip to Walt Disney World and Miami, Florida, to spend time with her grandchildren.
