To be fair, the New Jersey Lottery's "52,000,000 Gold Payout" scratch-off game isn't for the faint of heart, but there's still one ticket out there that will score the scratcher $1 million.

This particular game is a bigger commitment than you'd normally be in for with the standard $1 or $2 scratch-off tickets, these will cost you $10 bucks to play, but as a Browns Mills woman just found out, that investment could pay back 100,000 times over.

NJ.com reports that Maria Lopez bought one of the tickets at a market in Pennsauken and brought it back to her car to scratch it.

Moments later she became a millionaire.

The New Jersey Lottery says that 3 of the million dollar tickets were printed, and one is still out there somewhere.

In addition to the lucky ticket sold in Pennsauken, the other million dollar scratcher to be claimed so far was sold in Fords (Middlesex County).

Lottery officials say that more than 8 million of the $52,000,000 Gold Payout tickets were printed when the game started last February, but knowing that there's still a million dollar golden ticket out there is awfully tempting!
