A woman from Gautier, Mississippi, is waking up this morning $2 million richer.
The woman, who is choosing to remain anonymous, won a $1 million prize by playing Mega Millions with the Mississippi Lottery. She doubled her winnings with the Megaplier $1 option.
“I picked my own numbers, and I always play Megaplier,” she said. “When we heard the Mississippi Lottery was coming to Mississippi, I said I’d be the first to win!”
She purchased her winning ticket from Jerry Lee’s Grocery in Gautier, where she regularly stops once a week to purchase her tickets.
