Michigan Lottery: Francisco Lamas Wins $100,000

MI (STL.News) A Rockford man feels blessed after winning a $100,000 Powerball prize from the Michigan Lottery.

Francisco Lamas, 51, matched the four white balls and the Powerball – 19-28-46-50-54 PB: 09 – in the June 9 drawing to win a $50,000 prize.  Thanks to the Powerplay, the prize was multiplied to $100,000.  He bought his winning ticket online at MichiganLottery.com.

“I enjoy playing the Powerball and Mega Millions games, so I purchase tickets online from time to time,” said Lamas.  “I was doing work around the house one day and realized I forgot to check my tickets, so I logged into my account and saw a balance of $100,000.  I thought there was some kind of mistake until I realized I’d won a Powerball prize.  I called my wife right away to tell her the news.”

Lamas visited Lottery headquarters to claim his prize.  He plans to save his winnings.

“Winning this is such a blessing, it still doesn’t feel real,” said Lamas.

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.
