If you bought a Mega Millions lottery ticket - or tickets - in Ann Arbor for Friday's record-setting drawing, you just might be $250,000 richer.


Lottery officials released the locations where the 6 winning quarter-million tickets were sold in the state, and Ann Arbor had two of them on the list. Brighton had a third.

The Washtenaw County locations:

And in Brighton, a winner bought a ticket at the Woodland Party store at 8064 Grand River.

I am sure the OWS crowd will track the winners down and demand their "fair share".

At least buy a nice car. BMW is where it's at.

My 16-year old son picked the power ball and two other numbers; using ages & birth dates. I bought the ticket for him = $10 win for him!

I went 0 or 7 but am glad I helped the in-state share of the pie a little.

Haven't bought a ticket in 25 years. Hope the local winners use it wisely.
