The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought her winning ticket at Alward’s Market of Hale, located at 118 South Washington Street in Hale.
“It took me a couple of minutes to notice I had won and let it sink in,” said the 68-year-old player. “I had my daughter scan the ticket with the Lottery app, and that’s when it started feeling real.
“I was so overjoyed when I found out I won. It’s unbelievable, but it really does happen to people!”
The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim her big prize. With her winnings, she plans to take her family on a vacation and then have some fun with the remainder.
