Player Wins Michigan Lottery’s Largest Online Jackpot Ever

Lottery commissioner Suzanna Shkreli commented on the matter, congratulating the lucky player for “making history” by winning the biggest jackpot won online in the lottery’s history

A few days after a player in Michigan won $1 million playing Mega Millions, another local won a life-changing multi-million prize. After matching all correct numbers, a lucky Lotto 47 enthusiast hit the $7.19 million jackpot.

For context, the six winning numbers were 22, 24, 26, 40, 41 and 44. The winner got all of them right, turning their $1 ticket into a $7+ million payday.

The player in question bought the ticket online, effectively making this the largest jackpot won online in the Michigan Lottery’s history. The previous largest prizes won online at MichiganLottery.com stood at $5.75 million and were won by two Lucky for Life players. 

In the meantime, the current jackpot represents the third time in 2024 that someone has won the Lotto 47 jackpot. Previous big prizes were handed out on January 21 and January 31 when two players won $4.37 million and $1.1 million respectively.

As of the time of this writing, the jackpot winner has yet to contact the Michigan Lottery. Lottery officials advised them to contact the Lottery’s Player Relations division and schedule an appointment to claim the prize. Since Lotto 47 drawings are valid for a whole year after the drawing, the lucky lottery fan has ample time to get their prize.

Lotto 47 tickets cost $1. As the game’s name suggests, players have to select six numbers between 1 and 47 for a shot at multimillion-dollar prizes. The Lotto 47 progressive jackpots start at $1 million and grow with each drawing until a lucky customer guesses all six numbers correctly.

Lotto 47 players have the option to pay and additional $1 to activate Double Play. The function gives players a shot at a prize of up to $1.5 million in the Double Play drawing. Players can further customize their ticket for an additional $1, activating the EZMatch mechanic that allows them to instantly win a prize of up to $500.
