A New York City woman, shopping for a bottle of Korean rice wine, took home $85 million Mega Millions jackpot.

Jin Ok Choi bought the wine and the lucky ticket on July 1 at a Staten Island liquor store.

She said she “was just shocked” as she picked up her cheque on Wednesday.

She opted to take a lump sum payout, giving her $40.4 million after taxes.

The Daily News reports that the 54-year-old Jin Ok Choi wouldn’t divulge any personal details.
