Gray and her family claimed the winning ticket at the state lottery headquarters March 14, officials announced Wednesday.

“I just feel blessed,” Gray said in the news release. “This is what the family needed to get our lives back on track.”

The same retailer sold a $30 million Mega Millions ticket for the May 31, 2013 drawing, lottery officials said.
