Big Michigan winner to pay it forward

Sumayyah Waver

Drawing Date: 6/1/2021

July 26, 2021 - A Grand Rapids woman plans to pay it forward after winning a $1 million Mega Millions prize from the Michigan Lottery.

Sumayyah Waver, 39, matched the five white balls drawn – 07-11-33-58-63 – in the June 1 drawing to win a $1 million prize. She bought her winning ticket at the Meijer store, located at 1997 East Beltline Avenue Northeast in Grand Rapids, Mich.

“I like to play a variety of Lottery games, so I purchased a few tickets when I was getting groceries,” said Waver. “About a week later, I checked the tickets. When I realized I’d won $1 million I was blown away!”

Waver visited Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. With her winnings she plans to pay off student debt and pay it forward.

“I am blessed with the people in my life and what I do for a living, so this will allow me to feel free and enjoy life even more,” said Waver.
