The winning ticket was bought at the Marathon gas station located at 4115 Lansing Avenue in Jackson.

“I like to play the Millionaire Maker II game since the lowest prize you can win is $40,” said the 66-year-old player. “I bought one ticket and didn’t win anything on it, so I decided to buy one more. When I scratched the ticket and saw I won $1 million, I was so overwhelmed, but in the best way!”

The player, who chose to remain anonymous, visited the Michigan Lottery headquarters to claim his prize, and he decided to receive his prize in one lump of about $634,000.

Tom Bradys message to Jim Harbaugh will have Michigan football fans fired up

After beating Ohio State, Michigan football coach received a message from Wolverine legend Tom Brady that is sure to galvanize the Maize and Blue Faithful.

Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh shares a common trait with NFL quarterback Tom Brady in that they once played the role of signal-caller in Ann Arbor — though they obviously went in different directions thereafter.

Following Michigan’s upset win over rival Ohio State, both men reveled in the victory and berth in the Big Then Championship Game.

Before Saturday’s matchup against a talented Iowa team, Brady appeared on his “Let’s Go” podcast and sent a message to Harbaugh and his troops, which is sure to have the Maize and Blue crew inspired and ready to take on the next challenge.

Harbaugh was on Tom Brady’s Sirius XM podcast “Let’s Go!” tonight and said of the OSU win: “It’s something that I know I’m going to remember until they throw dirt over top of me.”

Tom Brady’s message to Jim Harbaugh is sweet music to Michigan football fans

For those who don’t know, Brady was once a starter for the Michigan Wolverines and was a backup on the 1997 National Championship team. Although Brady didn’t beat Ohio State in his junior season, he led them to a 10-win campaign and a Citrus Bowl victory.

Of course, Brady’s accomplishments in the NFL have made him far more of a legend than his college career did. In spite of that, he’s always remained true to the Wolverines since his stock skyrocketed as a surefire Pro Football Hall of Famer.

Undoubtedly, the Wolverines are riding high after this emotional victory. Having a message from a Michigan legend and arguably the best quarterback of all time only adds to the fun.
