FLINT, Mich. -- A Flint woman is $500,000 richer!

She won the money playing the Michigan Lottery’s Casino Riches instant game, according to a news release.

The ticket was purchased at the Mobil gas station, located at 1374 West Bristol Road in Flint.

"After scratching the ticket, I thought I lost," said the winner, who chose to remain anonymous. "I decided to have my boyfriend double check it when he went to the store.

"After he scanned it, he called me and told me the ticket was a $500,000 winner. At first, I thought he was kidding. When I realized I had actually won, I felt numb."
