Amber Thompson became a very rich woman on September 2 when she won the grand prize in the Michigan Lottery’s Red Hot & Blue 7s Instant ticket drawing at Arts, Beats & Eats in Royal Oak, Michigan.
Thompson, of Alma, Michigan, was overwhelmed when she realized she was the lucky winner of the $270,000 prize.
She said she is hoping to purchase a home with the prize money.
Thompson and her fellow finalists were randomly given colored Michigan Lottery t-shirts before the drawing that corresponded with color blocks on the prize wheel used for the drawing.
Thompson, wearing the blue shirt, walked away the big winner. Good for her. Pretty awesome moment.
