Michigan Lottery: Colleen Wymer Wins $1 Million Powerball Prize

MI (STL.News) A Macomb County woman’s wish for a large Lottery prize came true when she won a $1 million Powerball prize from the Michigan Lottery.

Colleen Wymer, of Clinton Township, matched the five white balls – 34-38-42-61-62 – in the March 17 drawing to win the big prize.  She bought her winning ticket online at MichiganLottery.com

“I often play the Powerball and Mega Millions games and win a few dollars here and there,” said the 62-year-old Wymer.  “When I logged into my Lottery account a few days after the drawing and saw a prize notification, I thought:  ‘Wow I hope it’s more than a couple dollars this time!’

“When I saw it was a $1 million prize, I couldn’t believe it.”

Wymer visited Lottery headquarters to claim her prize.  “I haven’t even thought about what I will do with my winnings yet because I’m still in shock.  It doesn’t seem real,” Wymer said.

Powerball plays may be purchased for $2 each at Lottery retailers across the state and online at MichiganLottery.com.  A “Power Play” option that multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times to a maximum of $2 million may be added to any Powerball play for only $1.
