LANSING, Mich. — A Greenville woman had a better Monday than most when she realized she had won the $1,000-A-Week For Life instant scratch-off game.

Tori Brayton bought her winning ticket at the Wesco gas station located on 127 West Washington St. in Greenville.

Brayton, 23 visited the Michigan Lottery Headquarters in Lansing Monday and chose to receive her winnings as a one-time lump sum of more than $1.1 million, rather than choosing annuity.

Brayton revealed that her plans are to invest in her house-flipping business and buy a new car for herself, her mother and her girlfriend.
