Oceana County woman wins $1.8 million lottery jackpot.

An Oceana County woman is planning to live worry free after winning a $1.18 million Jackpot Slots Fast Cash jackpot from the Michigan Lottery, according to a press release from the Michigan Lottery.

The 55-year-old woman, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased her winning ticket at the Wesco convenience store in New Era. 

“I usually play a few of the different Fast Cash games and decided on Jackpot Slots while I was at the gas station one day,’” she said. “I looked the ticket over when I got in my car and couldn’t believe it when I saw I’d won the jackpot. I still can’t believe this is happening!”

She visited the lottery headquarters to claim her prize and plans to save her winnings.

“I don’t have any special plans for the money as of now besides living worry free,” she said.

Fast Cash games are a series of instant-win games that print from terminals at Lottery retailers. Fast Cash tickets range in price from $2 per play up to $20 per play.
