KALAMAZOO, Mich. — A woman from Vicksburg was able to yell ‘Bingo’ Tuesday after scratching off a grand prize of $300,000 from a Michigan Lottery Multi-Prize Bingo instant game ticket.

Dietz bought the winning ticket at a Speedway gas station in Schoolcraft and thought she had only won $100.  But when she went to cash in her prize, to her surprise she won a lot more.

Players won nearly $817 million last year alone on instant games.

Dietz plans to use her winnings to pay off her student debt and to sail away on a vacation.
