The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, won the big prize when her Super Raffle number – 012201 – was selected as a $2 million winner in the Oct. 3 drawing. She bought her winning ticket at Bricks, located at 862 44th Street in Grandville.
“I was playing the Spin-To-Win game when I saw an ad for the Super Raffle game,” said the 35-year-old winner. “I normally play a few instant games here and there, but when I read the ad I decided I’d buy a ticket.
“As soon as I bought the ticket, I had a hunch that I was going to be a big winner! I’m so glad I was right!”
The players chose to receive her prize as a 30-year-annuity totaling $2 million rather than a one-time lump sum payment of about $1.3 million. With her winnings she plans to invest for her children’s education.
“We’ve got a big family, so this will help pay bills and pay for our children’s education. It’s a tremendous load off our backs,” the player said.
