The player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched the winning Lotto 47 numbers drawn Oct. 30: 04-07-12-13-30-32.

She bought the ticket at Dore's Party Store, located at 2521 South Huron in Kawkawlin.

"When I checked my ticket on Halloween, I really couldn't believe what I was seeing," said the 52-year-old player. "I made my husband double-check it just to be sure I wasn't dreaming. You always think about winning, but I'm not sure I ever thought it would happen. It has definitely felt like a dream!"

The lucky player claimed her prize recently and chose to receive her winnings as a one-time lump sum payment of about $1.1 million rather than 30 annuity payments for the full amount.

She says she plans to use her winnings to invest in her retirement.
