“I hadn’t checked my account in a few days, and when I logged in I saw an alert with a bunch of zeros,” said Allison-Chatman. “At that point, I started screaming and couldn’t stop.

“My husband came over to see what was going on, and when I told him he started laughing and couldn’t stop. We’ve played Powerball for years, you just never think you’re going to be the one who hits a big prize.”

Allison-Chatman visited Lottery headquarters Wednesday to claim the big prize. She plans to share her winnings with her family and take a trip to Hawaii.
