MILLVILLE, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Millville resident won $1 million in the Nov. 28 record $587.5 million Powerball jackpot.

Sandy Webster claimed the prize on Thursday.

Webster stopped at the Kwik Trip on 160 E. 6th St. in St. Charles on Nov. 28 to purchase some cookies for her kids. With the Powerball jackpot at a record amount, Webster bought one ticket.

She put the ticket in her purse and didn't think of it again until a few days later when she was at another gas station filling up her car, according to the Minnesota State Lottery.

When she went into the store to pay for the gas, Webster asked the sales clerk to check the ticket for her. "She said, 'Sandy, you won big!' I said yeah, right. And she said, 'No, I'm serious, you won big!'"

Webster didn't find out how much she won until she got home and checked the Lottery's website.

Webster's quick-pick Powerball ticket matched the first five numbers drawn on Nov. 28 to win $1 million.
