Winning the lottery can evoke such happy emotions in us that we up until that moment have only ever dreamed about. One such lucky lady from Michigan told lottery officials that she shed a few tears of joy after winning $5 million on the Mega Millions lotto game.
Gladys Salzwedel, from Oakley, in Michigan, recently won $5 million on the Mega Millions draw that took place on October 27th.
The elated usa lotto winner told lottery officials that she bought her winning Mega Millions ticket at an Admiral station in Chesaning. She might have won the jackpot, but she did bag a huge prize for matching the five main Mega Millions numbers.
The 68-year-old, and home-health nurse, told lottery officials that she loves playing not only the Mega Millions lottery, but the US Powerball as well. The day she purchased her Mega Millions winning lottery ticket she bought tickets for both.
“I play Mega Millions and Powerball at the Admiral station religiously,” said Gladys.
“I checked my Powerball ticket the Monday after the drawings, but I was in a rush so I stuffed the Mega Millions ticket back in my purse.”
Glady's said that she had quite a lot to do, so it was only when she saw a story on the news about someone in her area winning the $5 million prize on the Mega Millions lottery, that she decided to double check her ticket. The fact that the news stimpulated that the ticket had being sold at the Admiral station, got her heart racing even further.
“I called for my husband to get the ticket out of my purse and look it over,” Ms Salzwedel said. “When he came into the living room where I was, he said, ‘You’d better sit down.’” When he told me I’d won, I started bawling.”
Her wildest imagination came true when she saw that she she was holding the winning Mega Millions numbers in her hand. Now that she's claimed her $5 million Mega Millions win, she said that she plans to use the money to retire, pay off her bills, share with family and church and take a trip south to warmer weather.
