A 61-year-old Topeka woman wants to travel and go dancing with her husband after buying a winning $1 million lottery ticket.


The Kansas Lottery said in a news release Thursday the winner of the Holiday Millionaire Raffle never imagined it would be "raining money" in her front yard.


The lottery says the woman has worked for the state for 33 years but didn't release her name.


The woman told lottery officials that although her husband already is retired, she has no immediate plans to quit working. She says she loves her job and coworkers.


But she says she is thankful that once she does stop working she won't need to worry about money.
