A Bay County man took home an almost $830K prize earlier this month after hitting the Doubler Wild Time Progressive jackpot on a ticket he purchased at the Ideal Party Store location at 401 Salzburg Street in Bay City.

The $829,392 winner was actually purchased on April 19, 2021, but was not redeemed until January 2022 due to tax reasons, according to a report published on MLive.com.

The jackpot was the largest winner sold in Bay City in 2021 according to the Michigan Lottery web site, which tracks the dates and locations of all winning tickets sold with prizes above $600. It was also the fourth-highest winner sold in Bay City since 2009.
