The mystery lottery player who bought a $5.9-million winning ticket at a Clio supermarket has surfaced.

Sort of.

The lucky millionaire claimed his winnings after the Feb. 15 Classic Lotto 47 drawing but still wants to remain anonymous.

Garth Moreau knows, but he's not telling. Moreau is manager of the VG's Food Center, 710 S. Mill St., where the winning ticket was purchased.

"He's definitely a regular customer," Moreau said. "I know he lives around here, but I'm not sure he's a Clio resident."

The winner saw the six winning numbers — 18, 28, 31, 35, 41 and 47 — on TV during the live drawing but didn't realize he had the winning ticket until he called a state lottery hot line the next day, according to the Michigan Lottery Web site.

He plans to use the prize money to invest and purchase a new home and car, the Web site said.
