LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) – The Michigander who was the lone winner of last week’s $310.5 million Powerball game will reveal herself Tuesday morning.

Lottery officials tell 24 Hour News 8 that the winner will hold a news conference in Lansing at 10:30 a.m.

NBC Detroit affiliate WDIV reports the winner is a 50-year-old mother from Three Rivers who found out about her win while working an overnight shift at Aquatic. Her co-workers say she clocked out for a good a few minutes later.

The Three Rivers West Shell station sold the only winning ticket for last Wednesday night’s drawing. The numbers are 21, 39, 40, 55 and 59, and the Powerball is 17.

The jackpot can be paid over 30 years or the winner can choose a lump sum of about $197 million before taxes.
