A woman who wished to remain anonymous won $100,000 playing Michigan Lottery's Autumn Bucks instant game online.

"My favorite game to play online is Magic Money Ride, but I saw the Autumn Bucks game and wanted to give it a try," said the 40-year-old player to the Michigan Lottery. "I played the max bet of $20, and a few spins later, the prize amount of $100,000 came up on the screen."

The woman said she couldn't believe her eyes as the game screen displayed a graphic showing $100,000.

"I had to exit out of the game and double check my account balance to make sure I was seeing things right," she recalled to the Michigan Lottery.

The winner recently visited the Michigan Lottery headquarters in Lansing to claim her grand prize.

"Winning is a great feeling and will allow me to buy a house and give my kids a nice Christmas," the player told the Michigan Lottery.
