Big Michigan Lottery Winner Not From Michigan
Have you every traveled out of state, bought a lottery ticket, or lottery tickets, and thought..."man, if this would just hit big?"
Okay, well I have. But well, my out of state lottery tickets have never won big.
According to the Michigan Lottery, we did recently have a big winner from another state. Her name is Amber Hamm, she is from Wichita, Kansas and she is now "Lucky For Life" with the Michgan Lottery. Here's more from the Michigan Lottery's press release:
Amber Hamm, 33, of Wichita, won the big prize by matching the five white balls drawn July 29: 05-06-16-19-27. She bought her winning ticket at the Meijer store, located at 700 West Norton Avenue in Muskegon. "We are in Michigan on vacation and visiting family," said Hamm. "We were at the store getting our groceries for the trip and saw a Lottery machine while we were checking out, so we decided to try our luck.
"A few days after we bought the ticket, my uncle heard that someone in Muskegon had won a big prize, but we thought it was on a scratch off ticket. We decided to check our Lucky for Life ticket anyway. We saw we had matched five numbers but weren't sure how much money we had won. When we found out it was $25,000 a year for life we were in complete shock."
