PHOENIX, Ariz. (Tucson News Now) – A Phoenix woman won big recently when she scratched off a winning ticket for $1 million.

Alice Lewis, a caregiver from Phoenix, purchased a prize-winning Million Dollar Cash Bonanza ticket from a local Fry's, according to a press release. She scratched the card off in her car and at first thought she had only won $1,000, but after looking a little closer she realized it was actually a top prize winner and immediately went back into the store to have it verified.

Alice told officials that she has no immediate plans for the money, but intends to invest it for when she retires in a year.
