A Michigan Lottery player made history Wednesday night winning a $7.19 million Lotto 47 jackpot with a ticket bought online at MichiganLottery.com. The jackpot is the largest prize ever won online.

The lucky player matched all six numbers drawn – 22-24-26-40-41-44 – to win the jackpot. The previous record for the largest prize won online at MichiganLottery.com was $5.75 million. That record-setting 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.”

The big win marks the third time the Lotto 47 jackpot has been won in 2024. On Jan. 21 a $4.37 million Lotto 47 jackpot was won with a ticket bought at the Amvets Post 110, located at 127 West Cass Street in Cadillac. On Jan. 31, a $1.1 million Lotto 47 jackpot was won with a ticket bought at the Family Fare, located at 565 South State Street in Sparta. Both of those prizes have been claimed.

The lucky player who won last night’s jackpot should contact the Lottery’s Player Relations division at 844-917-6325 to setup an appointment to claim their prize. Lotto 47 tickets are valid for one year from the date of the drawing.
