Harbst told the Florida Lottery that she felt lucky after winning $100 on the game a week before her big win.

“I almost didn’t buy a ticket,” she said in the news release. “When I saw the ticket was number 24, I had to get it; 24 is my favorite number!”

Harbst chose to receive her winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $745,000.
