DETROIT – A Detroit woman won $100,000 when she decided to play on her lottery app during a break.

Jamila McCaskill, 44, of Detroit, said she was having a tough day so she took a break to relax.

“I logged into the lottery app to do my daily spin to win, and then decided to play some games,” McCaskill said. “As I was scrolling through the different games, Diamond Payout caught my eye, so I started playing.

“On only my second spin, the screen lit up and I knew I had won a prize. When I saw the prize amount of $100,000, I couldn’t believe it. This is by far the largest prize I have ever won, and it feels amazing.”

McCaskill went to Michigan Lottery headquarters and claimed her winnings. She said she plans to pay bills and pay off her home.
