Lansing man wins nearly 500K jackpot


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)— How would you react if won almost half a million dollars on a lotto ticket?

Well for one Lansing man, he’s still in disbelief.

“I like the Fast Cash games because you don’t have anything to scratch,” said the 29-year-old player. “I bought a couple tickets and tucked them away. Later that day, I remembered I had bought them and checked them.

“When I saw I was holding a jackpot winner, my eyes got huge! I called my family right away to tell them the good news and then sent them all a picture of the ticket.

“Winning is an incredible feeling, I just still can’t believe it happened to me!”
