Woman, 69, plays lottery for the first time — and wins.
A 69-year-old Michigan woman who decided to play the lottery for the first time in her life won a $250,000 jackpot.
The woman, who chose to remain anonymous, said she decided to try Keno for the first time during a recent visit to the local store in Lambertville.
“My husband stopped to purchase a Keno ticket while we were at the store,” she recalled. “I had never played before, but I had a few dollars on me, so I decided to purchase a ticket too.
“I picked a special combination of numbers made up of birthdays, our kids ages, etc. and got my ticket.”
The woman said she was shocked when her husband discovered her ticket was a winner.
“The next day, my husband walked in the door and told me I had won. I didn’t believe him until I looked the ticket over myself and saw I had matched all 10 numbers. It was exhilarating,” she said.
The winner said she plans to use her windfall to pay bills, share with family and save for her retirement.
