HOWELL (WWJ) - Someone in Michigan became a millionaire over the weekend. Could it be you?

According to the Michigan Lottery, Christmas came a little early for a yet-unidentified Michigan Lottery player who won a Lotto 47 jackpot.

The winning ticket -- which was sold at the Sunoco gas station at 763 S. Michigan Ave. in Howell --  matched all six Lotto 47 numbers 01-02-07-08-11-26 for Saturday's drawing to win the $3.73 million prize.

Each Lotto 47 ticket play is only $1. Players select six numbers from one to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot that starts at $1 million and grows until someone wins it. 

The Lottery says this is the seventh time the jackpot has been won in 2018, with prizes now totaling more than $21 million.

The lucky person who has the winning ticket is asked to call the Lottery's Public Relations Division at 517-373-1237 to make an appointment to claim the big prize.
