The ticket had the word "jumbo" along with a prize of $75,000. Her family pointed out that her winnings had been increased by five times due to getting "jumbo."

"I was running through the house screaming," she told lottery officials.

"Now I can buy a lot of candy," she continued.

The woman did not specify what she will do with her winnings. The odds of landing the top prize of $375,000 from the Mighty Jumbo Bucks ticket is 1 in 960,000.

The convenience store will receive $3,750 for selling the ticket.
