A woman who works as a nurse for Macomb County was blown away by an incredible lottery win.
The woman, who has requested to remain anonymous, had bought a $4-million Mega Bucks instant game ticket at a Sunoco station on Hayes Road in Macomb Township earlier. The Michigan Lottery says upon scratching the ticket, the nurse was pleasantly surprised to find she had bagged the top prize of $4 million. She started screaming right inside the store so the clerk had to ask what she won. Even the clerk found it hard to believe her good fortune.
The winner kept the ticket safe and then told close friends and family about it. She later chose to receive a single cash payment of $2.5 million instead of the full amount in annual payments. She says she intends to keep working but will reduce her working hours.
