A Wayne County woman won $4 million playing the Millionaire's Club instant game.

"I know it sounds crazy, but about four months ago I had a dream that I won $4 million playing scratch offs," said the player, who chose to remain anonymous. "Ever since, I've bought $30 tickets whenever I've had the chance."

"I scratched the Millionaire's Club ticket off and as soon as I saw the win symbol, I got really excited. When I scratched off the prize and saw '4MIL,' I couldn't stop shaking and crying. I called my friend right away and asked him to come double check the ticket for me."

The winning ticket was bought at the Valero gas station, located at West Vernor Highway in Detroit.

The 28-year-old player chose to receive her prize as a one-time lump sump payment of about $2.5 million.

With her winnings, she plans to pay off her student loans, set up college funds for her children, buy a new home and then invest the remainder.

"Winning this at my age is such an incredible opportunity for me and my family. I'm going to make good decisions so that I have this money for years to come," she said.
