August 06, 2019 - 10:09 am

(WWJ) "I can't explain this feeling other than to say I am very fortunate."

Those are the words of a Wayne County woman who won $100,000 playing the Michigan Lottery's Diamond Payout instant game online.

The 55-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, told the Michigan Lottery she created a Lottery account so she could try to win the $5,000 Spin To Win prize.

"I had been spinning the wheel every day, and then I decided to try my luck at some of the online games," she said. "I don't have a favorite game and skip around playing a little of everything. It just so happened that I won big on Diamond Payout. I was talking on the phone with my son while I was playing and when I won, I had to tell him to stop talking because I was trying to make sense of what I was seeing on my computer screen!"
