“A Michigan teenager who won $500,000 in an instant lottery game plans to give away most of his winnings, state lottery officials said. The 19-year-old man, who claimed his prize on Friday and asked to remain anonymous, told lottery officials he planned to invest $5,000 of the prize money and give the rest to his parents. ‘My parents have done so much for my sister and me,’ he said, in a lottery bureau release. ‘Helping them takes a big weight off of their shoulders and mine.’ {He] bought the ticket at a Sunoco gas station outside of Lansing. He said he bought the only remaining Golden Wild Time ticket and scratched it off in the store.” (03/18/17)
