A woman from Michigan used to play Lotto 47 approximately a year ago. After purchasing a ticket online from Michiganlottery.com, the woman became a millionaire winning a $1.2 million approximately 8.8 crore Indian rupee jackpot. The unidentified 51-year-old woman from Oakland County informed Michigan Lottery authorities that she began playing Lotto 47 approximately a year ago. It is strange to believe that she won the million jackpot from a lottery drawing after playing the same set of numbers every week for a year.
The woman said, “I always play the same digits, and I’ve always played them on the internet.” She reportedly matched the winning Lotto 47 numbers that were drawn on August 18: 05-06-11-36-40-47. Earlier, a man from Wayne County won $2.5 million on an online ticket. It is the second time one ie achieving this reward.
The woman after winning, went to Lottery headquarters to receive her prize. She opted for a one-time lump sum payout of about $734,000 instead of having more than 30 annual installments totaling $1.2 million. The woman herself couldn’t believe her prize and she said “ I was shocked when I verified in my account that I was the winner. I’m still shocked.”
