She called her husband who initially thought she’d won $1500.
“She called me to tell me she matched five of six, and I figured it was $1,500,” said the winner’s husband. “When she told me it was worth $1 million, I told her to ‘Stop lying.’ I couldn’t believe it.”

The lucky couple is unsure about what they’ll do with their winning amount, but probably plan to visit a financial advisor to see if they could retire from their jobs.
