Brooks won by playing her numbers as a "straight," meaning she had to match the numbers drawn that night in exact order to win.

She purchased her winning ticket at Weston's Meat Market & Grocery on Highway 357 in Church Point. 

She picked her numbers by combining her grandsons' birthdays.  Brooks plans to use her winnings to make a downpayment on a car.
