Christmas came early for a Mid-Michigan woman after she won $1,000,000 in the Michigan Lottery’s Jackpot instant game.

The Genesee County woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, bought her winning ticket at Bears Corner Party shop, located at 5519 North Elms Road in Flushing.

The winner chose to get her prize as a one-time lump payment of about $634,000 and plans to “make Christmas better” for her family, pay off some bills and use some of the money for college.

In 2015, Lottery players won more than $722.1 million playing instant games.
