Winning scratch-off ticket sold in Three Rivers

Officials with the Michigan State Lottery said a 23-year-old Three Rivers man last week cashed a winning scratch-off ticket to claim the $100,000 top prize.
According to a media release from the Lansing-based agency, the winning $3 ticket was purchased at Paul’s Pantry on East Michigan Avenue.
Zach Salmen told lottery officials he stopped at the store to grab a few things, and his change included $3, just enough to purchase a “$100 Grand Cashword” instant game. Salmen said he scratched off the ticket at home and was sure he had the grand-prize winning ticket but was not convinced until he went back to Paul’s Pantry to validate that it was, in fact, a big winner.
Salmen redeemed his ticket Thursday in Lansing. He told lottery officials he plans to take a trip to Myrtle Beach, buy a car and help family members.
