Another resident of northeast Michigan has hit it big through the Michigan Lottery.

An Iosco County man won $100,000 playing the lottery’s Poker Lotto game last Tuesday.

“I have been having a lot of luck playing Poker Lotto, so I continue to buy tickets daily,” said the 48 year-old man, who wishes to remain anonymous. “I was using the scanner to check my ticket when I got the message to visit a Lottery office. I gave it to the retailer to check, who got the same message, so he printed me out the winning cards. I was amazed when I saw I had matched all five to win $100,000. I couldn’t believe it!”

The player visited lottery headquarters Monday to claim his prize. With his winnings, he plans to make a down payment on a house and take a vacation.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Hatchery Road Market in Waterford.
