Mielke purchased the ticket from Safeway on Luckakuck Way and was at home when she found out she was a winner.
“I was really surprised and shocked when I saw the amount come up, she recalled. “I didn’t think it was real!”
The first person Mielke shared her amazing news with was her husband, who was equally excited.
The long-time lottery player has no concrete plans for her winnings, but is considering doing something special to celebrate around Christmas.
