Allegan County man wins $1.27M Fast Cash jackpot, 2nd big win since April
LANSING, MI – An Allegan County man is on the right track after recently winning a Fast Cash jackpot of $1.27 million, just weeks after winning a Club Keno jackpot of $95,231.
“I was at the bar and my friend told me I should buy a Fast Cash ticket because the jackpot was high and ‘someone had to win it soon,'” said the 33-year-old winner, who opted to remain anonymous. “I decided to buy a few and looked at them right away.
“When I saw the three jackpot symbols on the same line, I immediately took out my phone to scan the ticket on the Lottery app. When I saw the amount displayed on the screen, I wondered. I turned to my friend and said, ‘You won’t believe it!’ I was speechless.”
The winner purchased his ticket at the Main Street Pub, located at 4514 West Main Street in Kalamazoo, the same location where he purchased his winning Club Keno ticket. He recently went to the lottery headquarters to claim his prize and says he plans to invest his winnings.
“Winning this award changes a life. It will allow me to do things that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise,” the player said.

The latest Michigan player to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot is the Wolverine FLL lottery club who won a $1.05 billion jackpot in March 2021. With their winnings, the group plans to give back to the community.
And while they were lucky winners, it’s a good idea for players to check their tickets immediately because a $1 million winner sold to Warren last year went unclaimed. The money instead went to the State School Aid Fund.
