Bunszel selected the cash option on her prize and received a one-time payment of $9,750,000 (before tax withholdings). A mother of three, Bunszel plans on using her windfall to buy a house, a new car and provide for her family.

Additionally, four $1 million prizes have been awarded through the game’s Second Chance Drawings, which allow players to enter non-winning tickets online for opportunities to win substantial cash prizes. Two $1 million prize winners are selected in each of the five Second Chance Drawings in this game. There are three drawings remaining.
