 A mother and daughter are the lucky lottery winners after purchasing the $1 million winning Powerball ticket in Crestwood Oct. 24.

Robyn Zapp, of Jeffersonville, Indiana, has been staying with her daughter, Nikki Wolf, while renovations were done on her home.

Over the past several days, Zapp had given Wolf $20 to buy Powerball and Mega Millions tickets.

"I would go to the same store to buy the tickets," Wolf said. "I thought it might be lucky.”

And lucky she was. After the Powerball drawing on Thursday morning, Wolf texted her mom.

Here are the text messages between the two:

Wolf: "Somebody in Crestwood won a million dollars! "

Zapp: “Oh hell, let me check."

Zapp: “OMG! Do not say anything, we won a million dollars and this is not a joke."

According to the lottery officials, the two were in a state of shock.

"It's life-changing," Wolf said.

She and her husband have been working towards finishing their basement. "It's been my dream," she said.

As for Zapp, she would like to travel, and possibly take a trip to New York City.

Since the two split the winnings, each walked out of lottery headquarters with a check for $355,000, after takes, according to the Kentucky Lottery.

The winner numbers were 3-21-45-53-56. The Powerball number was 22.

The ticket is the second $1 million dollar Powerball ticket sold in the past 18 days in Kentucky.

The Circle K at 6465 West Highway 146 received a $10,000 bonus for selling the ticket, according to the Kentucky Lottery.

Saturday night's Powerball drawing is now an estimated $750 million.
