(Scroll down for video) It was a lucky day for a hard-working teenager.

The teen won a scratch-off lotto, which made her a millionaire.

The teenager of Chicago, Illinois, hit the jackpot, winning $4 million from the lotto ticket she received as a birthday gift from her father.

Deisi Ocampo received two $100 Million Money Mania instant lottery tickets for her 19th birthday from her father,
and it turned out to be the best birthday gift ever.

Ocampo said that she scratched off the tickets on her way to work, and could not believe her eyes. She won $4 million.

Even though she no longer needs to work, Ocampo continued on her way. She did not say anything to anyone and worked her entire shift, knowing she was a millionaire.

When she came home and told her parents, they were in shock and did not believe her.

Ocampo, who works in a clothing store while attending college, said that she plans to use the money to help pay for school and buy her family a new house.
