The Michigan Lottery has announced another big winner in Michigan! This time, 20-year-old Escanaba man, Tyler Larson, struck gold with the Michigan Lottery’s Black & Gold instant game, claiming a top prize of $500,000.

Larson bought his $10 winning ticket at Elmer’s County Market on North Lincoln Road in Escanaba. He claimed his $500,000 prize Monday at Lottery headquarters.

Here's the photo of the "young yooper" with his over-sized check!

I think my biggest win on an instant ticket was $30. What's the biggest amount of money you've ever won on an instant lottery ticket?
