LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State lottery officials say nearly $1.3 million will go to the winner in a new Michigan game where some of the money spent on tickets will help veterans.

The winning ticket was bought at the Wine Castle in Livonia. The prize must be claimed at Lottery headquarters in Lansing.

Three percent of the gross proceeds from the Veterans Day 50/50 Raffle will go to support veterans through the National Guard Association of Michigan.

Lottery officials say the association will receive more than $75,000 to help veterans and their families.

Lottery spokesman Jeff Holyfield told the Detroit Free Press for a story last month that after prizes and expenses, the rest of the proceeds from the game will go to the School Aid Fund.
