Patricia said she was half asleep when she checked her ticket on "I didn't want to wake my husband, so I was pacing around the house. I tried to sleep and checked it again. I still couldn't believe it!"

The mother and grandmother told her family right away. "Now they're all playing Daily Keno!"

She plans to pay some bills, share with her family, purchase a new washer and dryer and treat her husband to a new car. "I will put the rest into savings."
