The woman told officials she put $20 into the machine, closed her eyes and selected what turned out to be a $10 Willy Wonka Golden Ticket scratch-off game.
The player said she scratched the ticket off later in the evening while on the phone with her mother.
"Right in the middle of our call I started hollering, 'Thank you, Jesus!'" the winner recalled.
The randomly selected ticket was a $100,000 winner.
The woman said she plans to use some of the money to build a "deluxe she shed" and the rest will go into her retirement savings.
