“I really just didn’t believe it,” said Sheila Cleasby, who checked her Lotto 649 ticket at a self-checker in May. “I keptlooking at the screen thinking there was no way that it actually said one million dollars.”
Cleasby said the reality finally sunk in after scanning the ticket for the fourth time but still didn’t know exactly what to do so she waited to make her claim until now.
“I didn’t know how to act,” she said. “I walked out of the store and stood in the street trying not to yell out that I won a million dollars!”
