Wis. woman spends last $4 on lottery ticket, wins $4 million

KEWAUNEE, Wis. (AP) -- It's the outcome lottery players dream about. A woman in northeastern Wisconsin is financially comfortable after collecting a $4 million Megabucks jackpot.

Michelle Grant, of Denmark, says she spent her last $4 on a lottery ticket for last Saturday's drawing. She bought in Kewaunee while visiting her grandmother. Grant says when she checked her numbers the morning after the drawing, the second row matched and she started bawling.

Grant's husband, Dean, says all that money is a bit scary. He says they'll make sure they sock away enough for retirement and take care of their children. The couple plans to make an appointment with a financial planner and maybe take a small vacation.

WLUK-TV says Grant chose the lump sum payment, so after taxes, she'll clear nearly $2 million.
