Winning a $300K lottery ticket sold by Trenton liquor store

A 41-year-old Wayne County woman paid a visit to a Trenton liquor store and turned a $5 free play coupon from the Michigan Lottery into a $300,000 windfall.

The winner, who has opted to remain anonymous, chose to try her luck at Beverage Express, located at 1637 West Road.

Her win came playing the Cashword Times 5 instant game. She recently explained how she came upon the winning ticket.

“I purchased the ticket on New Year’s Eve using a $5 free play coupon I won playing the second chance games,” she said.

“I scratched the ticket when I got in my car, and when I saw I’d won $300,000 I couldn’t believe it.

I looked the ticket over multiple times and scanned it on the Lottery app to confirm the amount.

When the $300,000 came up on the screen with confetti, I called my family and friends to tell them the good news.

” She recently visited the Lottery headquarters and claimed her winnings.
