Wendy Johnson - from North Carolina - admitted she ''never'' expected to win the huge $1 million jackpot after trying for a second chance drawing alongside another 983,012 entries.

She told lottery officials: ''I never thought I'd win but I was praying. When I got the phone call, I actually thought I'd won one of the smaller drawings. It never occurred to me that I'd actually win the $1 million.''

She will buy a new house, and use the rest of the money to take care of her children and grandchildren.
