It could not have come at a better time.

A Hillman woman who lost her job two weeks before Christmas has won $250,000 on the Michigan Lottery’s The Big Spin television show.

As reported last month, 46 year-old Michelle Sanders was one of 20 players who qualified for the show through a second-chance drawing of the $10 The Big Spin instant ticket.

Sanders won the $250,000 prize after spinning the prize wheel on The Big Spin show.

“It’s been a tough couple months after losing my job, but this really makes things so much better,” Sanders said. “I’m going to pay some bills and then use the rest to start my own business so I don’t have to worry about losing my job ever again.”

Each player selected for the TV show had a chance to win up to $2 million. All the players were guaranteed to win at least $100,000.
