She was notified of her win at 3 a.m., after receiving an email from the organization, according to Jackpocket representatives.
She was unable to go back to sleep after receiving the congratulatory email, and at 7 a.m. she called one of her friends to share the good news, Jackpocket stated.
"I didn’t believe it at first. I thought it was a scam. But when I realized it was for real, I was pretty happy!," the winner shared with Jackpocket officials.
The winning ticket matched all five numbers drawn on April 15, but she did miss hitting the red Powerball number — 1-33-34-56-59.
The Gloucester County, New Jersey, resident "had a feeling to play" before officially ordering her ticket and taking home the big prize, the media release noted.
There have been nine New Jersey-specific players who have taken home the million dollar prize on Jackpocket and over 255,000 Jackpocket winners from New Jersey have taken home a total $59.5 million in prizes, since 2021.
