Congratulations to a Michigan woman who decided to try something different this time around.

It all boiled down to playing a different type of lottery game and that game paid out $1.7 million dollars to a woman who lives in Macomb County. She played the Lucky 7's game and became an instant millionaire.

Playing the lottery is like gambling. You pay money in hopes of winning a cash pay out. Basically you're taking a chance to win up to a million dollars or even more.

The most I've ever won from the lottery is around $300 dollars. I know it doesn't sound like much, but winning anything at all is worth something.

According to

The 37-year-old Macomb County resident, who chose to remain anonymous, won a $1.7 million Lucky 7's Fast Cash jackpot this week. She bought her winning ticket at Puritan Liquor Stop, located at 16046 Puritan Avenue in Detroit.

What a concept, you pay for lottery tickets and end up winning over $! million dollars. And the woman who won the big money is just going to save some of it and use the rest to pay off a few bills.

What would you do with just over a million dollars? First thing I would do is pay off my mortgage, then any outstanding bills that need to be paid off.

And what would I do with the rest of the loot? My wife and I would go on the most exotic excursion that money could buy. If you're going to win over a million dollars, you might as well enjoy yourself and do all the things you've always wanted to do.
