August 10, 2022 - A Wayne County woman couldn’t believe her eyes when she logged in to her Michigan Lottery account and saw a $1 million Mega Millions® prize pending.

Nikki Lawson, of Harper Woods, Michigan, matched the five white balls – 13-36-45-57-67 – in the July 29 drawing to win a $1 million prize. She bought her winning ticket online at

“I decided to buy a Mega Millions ticket because the jackpot was so high,” said Lawson. “The next day I saw an email from the Lottery notifying me that I’d won a prize. I logged in to my Lottery account to see what I’d won, assuming it was a $1,000 prize or a prize around that amount.

“When a pop up came up showing $1 million, all I could think was: ‘That is way too many zeros to be $1,000!’ I started freaking out when I realized how much I’d won.”

Lawson, 39, visited Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. With her winnings, she plans to purchase a home and then save the remainder.

Mega Millions drawings take place each Tuesday and Friday evening. Each Mega Millions play is only $2. For an additional $1 per play, players have the opportunity to add a “Megaplier” that can multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to five times. Mega Millions tickets are sold in 45 states, Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
