The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought her winning ticket at the Speedway gas station, located at 67371 Gratiot Avenue in Richmond.
“On payday, I always buy a $10 Cashword,” said the 47-year-old player. “On this particular payday, I also had a $10 coupon from the Cashword second chance game that I used to buy the ticket.
“I scratched it off and checked it 15 times. I even wrote all of the words down on a piece of paper and asked my daughter to double check my work.”
The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. With her winnings, she plans to buy a new home.
