STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) -- The Michigan Lottery says a Port Huron woman is the winner of a $66 million Mega Millions jackpot that was drawn in mid-June.

Kelsey Zachow says in a statement that she "could barely breathe" when she learned she was the winner.

The 24-year-old is getting her jackpot as a one-time lump sum cash payment of nearly $38 million and will take home nearly $27 million after taxes.

The ticket for the June 13 drawing of the multistate lottery game was sold at Sonny Tarhini's Mount Clemens gas station and store. The lottery says Zachow bought five Mega Millions plays that day and her fifth set of numbers, an easy pick, was the winner.

Twenty Michigan ticket-buyers also won $500 in that lucky Friday the 13th drawing
