Hesperia man wins $111,368 lottery

An 84-year-old Hesperia man won a $111,368 Jackpot Slots Fast Cash jackpot while at a Newaygo County bar, according to a press release on www.milotteryconnect.com.

James Conley bought the winning ticket, Jan. 16, at Freeman’s Leaky Tap, located at 10193 Dickinson Ave. near Walkerville.

“I play Fast Cash a lot, and I bought a ticket as soon as I got to the bar,” said Conley. “I saw the three jackpot symbols right away and I went into shock. A few people at the bar scanned the ticket on the Lottery app to confirm I really did win, and the owner confirmed it, too. Once everyone there knew I won, let’s just say I quickly became popular! Everyone was excited for me.”

Conley recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the prize. He plans to save his winnings.

“Winning has me feeling thrilled, nervous, happy, and everything in between,” said Conley.

Just last month, Michigan Lottery announced that a local woman and her lottery club partner won a $1 million prize. Kristi Sadler, owner of Kristi’s Pour House in Hart, bought a $1 million winning Powerball ticket at her bar.
