“I decided to purchase a Lottery ticket while I was out getting groceries,” said the player. “I didn’t see any winnings on the ticket when I scratched it, but I scanned it at the store to be sure. When I got a message to file a claim, I looked the ticket over a second time and that’s when I realized I’d won $4 million. I couldn’t believe it!”

She chose to receive her prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $2.5 million rather than 30 annuity payments for the full amount.
