Sandra Holland won $500,000 playing the Extra on the December 1, 2016 Daily Grand draw and wasted no time celebrating.

“I got my nails and hair done,” exclaimed Holland. “And I bought a brand new SUV on the weekend!”

Holland has her eyes set on an even bigger purchase, one that will make her canine companion very happy.
