I'll start by saying I shop at THIS Meijer location all the time and have purchased lottery tickets there on many different occasions. So...dang it! That being said, congratulations to the lucky man from Lansing who just won a MILLION DOLLARS on a scratch-off ticket he recently purchased at the Mejier located on South Pennsylvania in Lansing. According to the Michigan Lottery, the winner--who chose to remain anonymous--won the big jackpot on the Millionaire Maker instant game. You can click here to see a photo of the winning ticket. The winner told the Michigan Lottery that he had recently won some money playing the Lotto 47 and decided to use some of his winnings "to buy a couple of instant tickets out of the vending machine at Meijer."

Just last week a woman near my hometown of Centreville also won a million dollars on the Millionaire Maker instant game. She purchased her winning ticket at the Hardings Market in Three Rivers. You can click here to read more about that big win.
