Woman wins £1.1m lottery prize after mum’s spontaneous comment about ticket

A woman has won £1.1 million in a lottery after taking her mum’s advice.

While staying anonymous the jackpot prize winner says she bought a ticket when out shopping with her mother who suggested she should “give that game a try”.

The so called game was Michigan Lottery’s Lucky 7s Fast Cash jackpot where a life-changing $1,682,998 (£1.1m) could be cashed in.

On the suggestion of her mum, the 37-year-old millionaire to-be bought a ticket on December 18, 2021.

She told Michigan Lottery Connect: “I was out with my mom and playing Club Keno.

“My mom told me that the Fast Cash jackpot was more than $1.6 million and suggested I give that game a try.”

Unlike some famous lottery winners, this one vows not to spend all her winnings at once

And not to be rash with her winnings, the unidentified woman sensibly wants to save whatever is rest.

MI Lottery said: “Fast Cash games are a series of instant-win games that print from terminals at Lottery retailers.
