Wayne County Woman Wins $300K On Scratch Off Lottery Ticket

(CBS DETROIT) - A woman from Wayne County says she couldn't help but cry after winning $300,000 playing the Michigan Lottery's Wild Time Deluxe instant game.

The 29-year-old player bought her winning ticket at the CVS Pharmacy, located at 19120 Middlebelt Road in Livonia.

"We were having a family gathering at our house and I had to run to the store to grab a few last-minute things for the party," said the player. "I handed the cashier money and told him I wanted to use the change on a Wild Time Deluxe ticket. I forgot I had purchased the ticket until later that night. When I scratched it off and saw I'd won $300,000, I couldn't help but cry. It was hard to believe that I actually won!"

The lucky player recently claimed her prize and says she plans to buy a new home with her winnings.
