If legislation working its way through the Michigan Senate had been law last month, the world might never know the name and face of Donald Lawson of Lapeer, who claimed his prize for winning the $337 million in the Powerball lottery game.
It’s the end of the line for the three people who read the lottery numbers on Detroit TV.
The winner of a $337 million Powerball jackpot has stepped forward to claim his prize.
The Michigan Lottery says it has been contacted by the winner of last week’s $337 million Powerball jackpot.
Three days after a ticket sold in Lapeer won a $337 million Powerball drawing, another Michigan lottery player won a big jackpot.

Lottery officials say one ticket matched five numbers Saturday and is worth $1 million before taxes. No one won the $181 million jackpot.
The Mega Millions jackpot has risen to an estimated $45 million for the next drawing in the multistate lottery game.
None of the 3 winning tickets sold for Friday’s record $640 million jackpot went to Michiganders, but don’t toss your tickets just yet.
“Never has there been a jackpot this size in any lottery in the world,” said Michigan Lottery spokesperson Andi Brancato.
