HELL, Mich., Nov. 5 (UPI) -- John and Sue Wilson from Hell, Mich., won a $115,001 lottery on one of the year's scariest days, Halloween.

The couple won a Fantasy 5 prize Wednesday, the Livingston (Mich.) Daily Press & Argus reported.

They didn’t realize that their drawing had been held on Halloween until they claimed their prize two days later.

"How cool is that?" Sue Wilson, 43, told the newspaper. "We live in Hell and won it on Halloween."

The couple said the money would go towards bills, home projects and a Nintendo Wii video game console for their 13-year-old son.

"It's not $200 million or anything -- it's not going to change our life, but it's ... something to say, 'OK, we're going to have a good Christmas,'" said John Wilson, who is an electrician.
