Michigan Player Hits $1 Million Scratch Ticket Jackpot Online

This past week a lottery player in Michigan took down the state's first online scratch ticket jackpot as they won $1 million playing the $20 Diamond Payout scratch ticket.

The player has chosen to remain anonymous, but the win was confirmed by lottery officials, who note that the win is the largest win that has been recorded online. To date, more than 100,000 of Michigan's residents have played the games online.

Even with those numbers, online lottery sales are off to a slow start, as industry analysts have estimated that it will take eight years for online sales to top $480 million.
