An Oakland County woman kept her $682,000 winnings a secret for weeks

An Oakland County woman was so incredulous after winning a $682,784 Jumbo Jackpot Slots Fast Cash prize that she kept it a secret for several weeks.

The 87-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased her winning ticket on Dec. 30 at the Square Lake Marathon gas station, located at 5977 Livernois Road in Troy.

“I play Fast Cash once a week,” the player said. “Right after I bought the ticket, I looked at it and saw three jackpot symbols. I knew what I saw, but I didn’t believe it. I had a friend look at the ticket and he confirmed that I didn’t see anything and that I had really hit the jackpot!

“I found it hard to believe that I had actually won, so I kept it to myself for a while. After a few weeks I finally told my family. They couldn’t believe I could keep it a secret for so long and were over the moon!”

The lucky player recently visited the lottery headquarters to claim the prize. With her winnings, she plans to complete and invest in some improvements to her home.
