The Oakland County woman, who wants to remain anonymous, was playing the Extreme Green instant game online when she was notified she had won.

"When the $100,000 amount popped up while I was playing, I didn’t think it was real. It wasn’t until I saw the prize amount in my account balance that I believed I had actually won. It was shocking!" she said. "I’ve always told my family that when it comes to playing the Lottery, ‘I am in it to win it. ' I can’t believe it finally happened!"

The winner said she plans to invest the winnings and help her family.
