A Michigan Lottery player made history when they won $7.19 million Lotto 47 jackpot with a ticket they purchased online. The jackpot is the largest prize ever won on Michigan Lottery’s website.

The player matched all six numbers drawn on Wednesday, March 22, 2024, night to win the jackpot. The numbers were 22-24-26-40-41-44.

The previous record for the largest prize won online at MichiganLottery.com was $5.75 million. The prize was won in back-to-back months in February and March of 2021 by two Lucky for Life players.

“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,” said Lottery Commissioner, Suzanna Shkreli. “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 win marks the third time the Lotto 47 jackpot has been won in 2024. On Jan. 21, a $4.37 million Lotto 47 jackpot-winning ticket was purchased in Cadillac. On Jan. 31, a $1.1 million Lotto 47 jackpot was purchased in Sparta. Both of those prizes have been claimed.

The player who won Wednesday night’s jackpot should contact the Lottery’s Player Relations division at 844-917-6325 to setup an appointment to claim their prize. Winners have one year from the date of the drawing to claim the prize.
