Lucky 13 Lotto Club wins $1 million Mega Millions prize
Drawing Date: 1/13/2015
January 15, 2015 - The number 13 is definitely lucky for the members of the Lucky 13 Lotto Club, which won $1 million from the Michigan Lottery playing the Mega Millions game.
The club won $1 million in Tuesday’s drawing by matching the five white balls drawn: 12-20-25-50-51. The club’s ticket had a Mega Ball number of 14. If it had matched the Mega Ball number drawn – 07 – the club members would have won the game’s $246 million jackpot. The club bought its lucky ticket at the Eagles Market, located at 501 West Cross Street in Ypsilanti, Mich.
“We’ve been playing the Lottery together for a long time and have dreamed of winning,” said the club’s representative, who declined to be identified. “To win a big prize is exciting for all of us, and being just one number away from winning the jackpot, I know we’ll keep dreaming and playing.”
Twelve of the club’s 13 members visited Lottery headquarters Thursday to claim the big prize. Club members have many plans for their winnings, including: purchasing new vehicles, making home improvements, and investing for retirement.
