Brian Pierce Wins $150000 in Michigan Lottery’s Instant Game Online

Michigan (STL.News)  A Macomb County man is house hunting after winning $150,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Fruity Cashword instant game online.

“I like playing instant games online and play a little of everything,” said Brian Pierce, of Richmond.  “I was playing the right game at the right time, and it hit!

“I was uncovering the letters one-by-one and realized I had a lot of words adding up.  I must have counted 10 words 10 times before the stunned feeling hit.  I almost thought I was having a heart attack.”

Pierce, 40, visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize.  He plans to use the money for a down payment on a new home for his family.

“This is life changing money and is really going to help me and my wife find our dream home,” Pierce said.
