Feb 7, 2013

HOUGHTON, MI--   The identity of the winner of a $19 million lottery ticket in the Keweenaw has not yet been released.  

The Michigan Lottery says the sole winning ticket for Tuesday evening's drawing was sold at Festival Foods in Houghton.

Festival Foods assistant manager Sherri Brey told the Daily Mining Gazette that a woman called the store Wednesday morning asking what to do with a winning ticket but didn't give her name.

Brey says "it's pretty exciting" that the store sold the ticket.

The jackpot for Friday's drawing now drops to $12 million.
