WAYNE COUNTY, Mich. (WXYZ) — A Wayne County man plans to invest and make his money work for him after winning a $259,022 jackpot playing the Michigan Lottery's Doubler Wild Time Progressive Fast Cash game.

The player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought the winning ticket at the Shell gas station, located on 27460 Eureka in Romulus.

"I had to check the ticket over a couple times," said the 31-year-old player. "As I was walking out, the clerk asked if I had any winners and I was so nervous I just said: 'Nah, man.'"

Fast Cash tickets range in price from $2 per play up to $20 per play. Prizes never sell out and there is no waiting for a drawing as all games are played immediately.

In 2019, players won more than $61 million playing Fast Cash games.
