Charlevoix Co. Man Wins $1 Million

A Charlevoix County man won $1 million off a Michigan Lottery scratch-off game.

The 63-year-old man who has decided to stay anonymous played the Michigan Lottery’s Cashword Millions instant game.

He says he plays this game because it takes a while to play, but when he scratched the $1 million winner, he felt a huge sense of relief.

This winning ticket was bought at East Jordan’s EZ Mart of Water Street.

The man chose to take the winnings as a one-time lump sum of $634,000.

He says he plans to pay off his house and then save the rest of the money.
