PowerballPowerball: $80 million Powerball jackpot lottery ticket sold in MichiganRating:

A Michigan Lottery player won Saturday night's $80 million Powerball jackpot with a ticket bought in Suttons Bay, according to the Michigan Lottery.

The winning ticket, bought at the Barrels & Barrels Party Store in Suttons Bay in northern Michigan, matched the Powerball number 22, plus the day's winning numbers: 1, 9, 22, 36, and 68.

Saturday's jackpot win is the fourth time a Michigan player has won the Powerball since the state began offering the game in 2010, the Michigan Lottery said.

The last Michigan player to win the Powerball jackpot winner was Julie Leach, of Three Rivers, in 2015. That jackpot was $310.5 million.

Leach was a supervisor at Aquatic Bathware, a Michigan fiberglass factory, where she worked for 23 years. She quit that job immediately upon winning the massive prize.

In 2012, a $337 million Powerball jackpot, the largest lottery prize ever paid out in Michigan, was won by a railroad engineer from Lapeer

The Powerball is a multi-state drawing at 10:59 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday.

The Powerball jackpot winner can contact the Michigan Lottery's Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to setup an appointment to claim their prize. The winner may choose to accept their prize as a 30-year annuity, or a one-time lump sum payment of about $55 million.

USA Mega's Jackpot Analysis shows what the winner will receive from the lottery after the initial federal and state taxes are withheld.

      I believe that Julie Leach won $140 million after all taxes were paid. She planned to create a small community of homes where her kids would live. I wonder if she was successful in her dream. 

       Julie gave a very good press availability interview when accepting the over sized check from the Michigan Lottery Commissioner Scott Bowen. She appeared to be a great Mom and Grandmother.

       The railroad engineer from Lapeer, MI is named Donald Lawson. I do not know how he is doing.

       Congrats to this MI PB lottery winner of the annuity of $80 million. Party

              $55 Million Cash option ? Minus Uncle Sam's and the states cut.  Yeah, that would be the perfect amount to take home(imho).  Congrats to the lucky winner(s) !!
