SUN CITY WEST, Ariz. -- A man and woman from Sun City West have just become Arizona's newest millionaires.

Mike and Nancy Baker won $5 million in the Mega Millions lottery.

Mike Baker says he and his wife have been playing this lottery since they moved to Arizona in 2006.

Last year, they changed the numbers they play every week to include their birth year.

"We went back home and looked at the numbers and went, 'Five numbers? Hm,' " Mike Baker recalled. "And then at the store they said, 'Did you play the multiplier?' And I said, 'Yes.' "

The multiplier turned the $1 million prize into a $5 million prize.

The Bakers haven't decided what they're going to do with the money, but they said they will continue playing the lottery because it's fun and some of the money goes toward education.
