PHOENIX - A Phoenix couple have become millionaires after winning big in Saturday's Pick lottery.

Katherine and Husam Abutahun won The Pick jackpot of $4.5 million and chose to take the lump sum totaling $2.5 million.

Husam says he checked his lottery ticket on Monday and immediately called his wife who at first was skeptical. "She didn't believe me when I told her that we won, so I told her to come down to the store to see for herself."

The Arizona Lottery will present the couple with a check for $4.5 million at the lottery headquarters.
