Beaver Island Woman Wins $500K in Lottery Game

A Beaver Island woman made a trip to the mainland and ended up winning half a million dollars.

Rose Hockey won $500,000 playing Michigan Lottery’s Platinum Wild Time Instant Game.

She bought the ticket at the Mobil Gas Station on Bridge Street in Charlevoix.

Hockey says she was on the mainland to buy a new washer and dryer when she picked up the ticket.

That should help with the cost.

She plans on helping out family with the rest.
