A Wayne County, Michigan, woman had a dream that she won $4 million on a scratch-off lottery ticket. Four months later, it really happened.
The 28-year-old woman, who chose to remain anonymous, told the Michigan Lottery that after having her dream, she started buying $30 instant tickets.
Recently, she purchased a Millionaire’s Club ticket and revealed a win symbol.
“When I scratched off the prize and saw ‘4MIL,’ I couldn’t stop shaking and crying,” she told the Michigan Lottery. “I called my friend right away and asked him to come double check the ticket for me.”
She purchased her ticket at the Valero gas station located at 3801 West Vernor Highway in Detroit.
She opted to receive a one-time lump sum payment of about $2.5 million.
She’ll use the money to pay off student loans, set up college funds for her children, buy a new home and save the rest.
“Winning this at my age is such an incredible opportunity for me and my family,” she told the Michigan Lottery. “I’m going to make good decisions so that I have this money for years to come.”
