CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — A Macomb County woman won $100,000 playing Powerball online.

Barb Brown, from Clinton Township, matched four of the white balls and the Powerball in the Jan. 29 drawing to win a $50,000 prize. With the Powerplay, her prize was multiplied by two for $100,000. She bought her winning ticket online.

"I don't play regularly, but saw the jackpot getting up there so I logged on and bought a ticket," said Brown. "The next day, I was going through my email and had a message stating I had won a prize, but it didn't say how much.

"I logged in to my account and a pop-up came up that said I won $100,000! My first thought was: 'Is this real?' Me and my husband were both in shock!"

She plans to save her winnings.
