Bailey said her heart sank when she saw that she didn't get the mega number, but quickly realized she was still a big winner.

She had no idea her prize was more than $4 million.

Bailey says she plans to give part of the prize money to her parents to help in their retirement.

She also wants to donate to charity and then will most likely go on a vacation.
