“I only bought one ticket,” the lucky winner told the state lottery. “I closed my eyes and picked that one, and it won! I first thought I’d won a free ticket, but I checked, and it said I won $5 million!”
The magnitude of her win was not lost on Forseth. She reflected on her past, saying, “Six years ago, I was homeless. This year, I am getting married, getting my associate degree, and won $5 million.”
