Click for cash! Online ticket wins $7.19 million Lotto 47 jackpot

Hold onto your hats, Michigan Lottery players! History was made Wednesday night when a lucky player became the first to snag a Lotto 47 jackpot exceeding a whopping $7 million. And get this – they did it all from the comfort of their couch, thanks to the Lottery's online platform!

The winning ticket, purchased on the Michigan Lottery website, matched all six numbers drawn: 22-24-26-40-41-44. This shatters the previous online record of $5.75 million, which was won twice in early 2021 by Lucky For Life players.

Lottery Commissioner Suzanna Shkreli said:

Congratulations to the lucky Michigan Lottery player who made history last night winning a $7.19 million Lotto 47 jackpot, with a ticket bought online. The Lottery's online game portfolio gives Michiganders the chance to win huge jackpot prizes with tools that promote responsible play while supporting public schools. This is a huge win for the lucky player and the Michigan Lottery's industry-leading online game platform.

This incredible win marks the third Lotto 47 jackpot claimed in 2024. The year kicked off with a $4.37 million jackpot win in January, followed by another lucky winner taking home $1.1 million later that month.

How to play Lotto 47

Lotto 47 jackpots start at $1 million and keep growing until someone scoops the prize. Each play costs just $1, and you choose six numbers between 1 and 47. To multiply your chances of winning, add Double Play for $1 to get a second shot at a prize in the nightly drawing. Feeling lucky? Add EZMatch for another $1 for a chance to win up to $500 instantly.

Lotto 47 drawings are held twice a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays, at 7:29 PM. Tickets can be purchased online until 7:08 PM on drawing days or at any lottery retailer.
