It takes money to make money as the old saying goes. But for a Michigan woman, it didn’t take much. The unidentified lottery winner spent just $5 for a Pick-Six ticket and was surprised when she saw she was holding a winning ticket worth $300,000.

“I purchased the ticket on New Year’s Eve using a $5 free play coupon I won playing the second chance games,” the woman told Michigan Lottery officials. “I scratched the ticket when I got in my car, and when I saw I’d won $300,000, I couldn’t believe it! I looked the ticket over multiple times and scanned it on the Lottery app to confirm the amount. When the $300,000 came up on the screen with confetti, I called my family and friends to tell them the good news!”

But the anonymous 41-year-old didn’t rush to claim her prize right away. She just recently turned the ticket in. She said she plans to pay bills, take a vacation and save her winnings, presumably in that order.

The winning Cashword Times 5 ticket was purchased at the Beverage Expression West Road in Trenton.
