  • Gloria doesn’t usually say yes to Extra, but since she had just won a free play, she agreed to it after hesitating a bit.

  • When she had her ticket validated a few days later, the number displayed on the terminal didn’t register and she didn’t know how much she had actually won.

  • She got in the car and said to her spouse: “Take me back home!”

  • Once there, she checked the results on the Internet and finally understood that she’d won $1 million!

  • The new millionaire doesn’t have any specific plans for the moment, but she will certainly treat herself.
