1-29-16 01.26.16 Powerball 01.13A 78-year-old Lake City woman is looking forward to getting a new dishwasher after winning $1 million playing the Michigan Lottery’s Powerball game.

Charlotte May Willis won the $1 million prize by matching the five white balls drawn in the Jan. 13 Powerball drawing: 04-08-19-27-34. She bought the winning ticket at the Admiral gas station, located at 805 South Mitchell Street in Cadillac.

Willis learned she was a $1 million winner after her grandson checked the numbers for her online at MichiganLottery.com.

Willis visited Lottery headquarters in Lansing on Tuesday to claim her big prize. She said that winning $1 million “didn’t seem real” until she had her picture taken while holding a big check.
In addition to purchasing a new dishwasher with her winnings, Willis plans to pay off her bills and complete some home improvement projects.
