Michigan Lottery Player is an April Fools' Day Winner

A woman from Westland, Michigan, proved she was no April fool earlier this week when she picked five of the winning Mega Millions numbers drawn on Tuesday April 1, and won a $1 million prize.

Jennifer Krauss bought her winning ticket from the Take-a-Break Café in Auburn Hills, returned on Wednesday morning, checked the ticket, and spent the rest of the day clutching her purse.

"I was so nervous I kept the ticket in my purse. Then I kept my purse with me all day," she told lottery officials.

Krauss said she and her husband Phil now intend to pay off their debts and donate some of the money to charity.
