“I want to set the kids and the grandkids up right away," Mills said in a news release Tuesday.

"We’re looking forward to paying off our grandkids’ education, their student loans and helping them buy a house.”

Mill bought her ticket online through BCLC's Play Now website. She's been buying tickets from there for the last two years, and when an email notice came in saying that she had won, Mills admits she thought it was a free ticket, or maybe a dollar.

“Then I saw a lot of zeros and thought I was seeing things so I woke up my husband and asked him to look," she said.

Mills plans to share in the spoils with her family.

“Well, I’d like to buy a new car,” she said. “Right now we have a truck, and it’d sure be nice to have a smaller car that’s easier to get into parking spots!”
