The Mega Millions April Fool’s Day drawing was no joke for Michigan Lottery player, Jennifer Krauss, who won $1 million.
Krauss, of Westland bought her winning ticket from Take-A-Break Café Hamlin and returned to check her numbers earlier today. After finding that she had matched the first five numbers in the Mega Millions game, she could barely contain her excitement.
“I was so nervous, I kept the ticket in my purse,” said Krauss. “Then I kept my purse with me all day.”
Krauss and her husband, plan to use their new found fortune to pay off debt, help their children with student loans, and to donate to charities.
“Maybe we’ll redo the kitchen if there’s enough left over,” Krauss said.
Take-A-Break Café Hamlin is located at 3551 Hamlin Rd. in Auburn Hills.
