Historic lottery award ceremony Friday in Michigan

Mega Millions / PowerballMega Millions / Powerball: Historic lottery award ceremony Friday in Michigan

By Todd Northrop

LANSING, Mich. — For the first time in Michigan Lottery history, two mega jackpot winners will collect their winnings at the same time Friday at Michigan Lottery headquarters in Lansing.

Most public interest will likely be centered on the winner of Saturday's $128.6 million Powerball drawing.  That's because of the unique location where the winning ticket was purchased:  an adult video and book store in Highland Park.

The location also includes a walk-up window for lottery ticket purchases, and the odds are good the winner will explain that was how the winning ticket was purchased.

The other big winner claiming their prize Friday bought a Mega Millions lottery ticket worth $141 million in the Oct. 29 drawing.  The winning ticket was purchased at a convenience store in Gladstone, in the Upper Peninsula region.

              Will he bring his wife?

              Will other players start buying their tickets at Adult Book Stores and Peep Shows?

              Will the winnings be paid off in quarters?

                DanceI'd take quarters ... but only if they're from 1964 and older. Wink

                      PumpkinMichigan sure was hot in the lottery multi-millions net jackpot claiming realm!  It's interesting that both would agree to appearing in person (rather than sending a representative lawyer) tomorrow.  Maybe one or both ticket holders will change their plans.  Appears that their state tax on lottery winnings is 4.35%; not bad, not great.  Add that deduction to the probable 35% federal tax and the wins are still SUPER exciting. 

                      Next door neighbor, Ohio won the jackpot the following drawing!  Now, which state's ticket purchaser will win the next jackpot?   I'm allowing it to be me.
