A lucky Ottawa County woman couldn't believe her eyes when she scanned her Super Raffle ticket and read: "Congratulations! You are a $2 million winner!" 

The player bought her winning ticket at Bricks in Grandville.

"I was playing the Spin-To-Win game when I saw an ad for the Super Raffle game," said the 35-year-old winner. "I normally play a few instant games here and there, but when I read the ad I decided I'd buy a ticket."

"As soon as I bought the ticket, I had a hunch that I was going to be a big winner! I'm so glad I was right!"

She chose to receive her prize as a 30-year annuity totaling $2 million rather than a one-time lump sum payment of about $1.3 million.

She plans to invest in her children's education with her winnings.

We've got a big family, so this will help pay bills and pay for our children's education. It's a tremendous load off our backs," the player said.
