Those are the words of a Macomb County woman, who said she's still in shock after winning $300,000 playing the Michigan Lottery’s Super Bingo instant game.

Rhonda Sokol, of St. Clair Shores, bought the bought scratch-off ticket at the Sunoco gas station at Harper Ave. and E. 8 Mile Rd., in St. Clair Shores. 

“I bought the ticket on Friday and forgot all about it,” said Sokol. “It wasn’t until Saturday that I remembered I had the ticket and began scratching it. I saw I won $15 and then $30, and then I realized I was only three way from $300,000. When I scratched the last number to win $300,000 I couldn’t believe it. I had to have my fiancé check it over to make sure I had actually won.”

The lucky 51-year-old recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim her prize. With her winnings, she plans to pay bills and then save the remainder.

According to Michigan Lottery officials, players have won more than $11 million playing Super Bingo which launched in October 2018. Each $5 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $5 up to $300,000. 

Remember: About 97 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to vendors and retailers. In 2018, Lottery players won more than $1 billion playing instant games.
