May 13 (UPI) -- Deborah Berschbach of Royal Oak, Mich., won $500,000 playing the Powerball over Mother's Day weekend.

Berschbach told lottery officials that she stopped to buy her winning ticket before heading to a cottage over Mother's Day weekend.

Berschbach matched five balls with the numbers 14, 22, 38, 56 and 60. She then checked her ticket on Mother's Day while leaving the cottage.

"On our way home Sunday, I got the ticket out to check it, and my husband said, 'Wouldn't it be something if you won big for Mother's Day?" Berschbach said.

"When I scanned the ticket on the lottery app and the amount of $500,000 came up on the screen, we couldn't believe it. We both looked the ticket over what seemed like 100 times. We were shaking the whole way home!" she continued.

Berschbach went to lottery headquarters to claim her prize, telling lottery officials she wants to pay off her home and then save the rest of the money.

Recently, an unidentified man from Michigan said he was unaware of his $242,256 jackpot until he came across some forgotten tickets in his wallet.
