Sandra Allison-Chatman, 58, is the winner of the $100,000 Powerball prize announced Wednesday, May 30. 

Allison-Chatman matched four white balls and the Powerball – 09-10-12-17-23 PB: 09 – in the April 18 drawing, according to a media release.

Since Allison-Chatman chose the Powerplay option, her winnings, which would have totaled $50,000, were multiplied. 

“I hadn’t checked my account in a few days, and when I logged in I saw an alert with a bunch of zeros,” Allison-Chatman told the Michigan Lottery. “At that point, I started screaming and couldn’t stop. My husband came over to see what was going on, and when I told him he started laughing and couldn’t stop. We’ve played Powerball for years, you just never think you’re going to be the one who hits a big prize.”
