According to lottery officials, Morgan said her boyfriend was in disbelief because earlier that day he told her that he was buying a ticket for the Mega Millions.

Little did they know that she would win over $222,000, only 17 minutes after talking.

Morgan received a check for $156,945 after taxes.

She told officials that she plans to use the money to pay off her home.
