The ticket was bought for just R75 ($5) but has made the lady and her family hug headlines for their luck.
Reacting, the woman said in a report by Fox29:
"We have been saving money for a down payment on a house, thinking we would be ready by the end of the year. But now, we don’t have to wait!"
At first, they couldn't believe it, so they scanned it more than once to be sure. She said in a story by CNN, quoting Maryland Lottery:
"My husband took the ticket to the store to scan it, just to be sure it was real. We also asked my brother-in-law to come over and scan it on the Maryland Lottery app."
