    When Maria won millions in a lottery

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    When Maria won millions in a lottery, she went on a shopping spree every week to make up for her poor childhood.

    It's okay, but I would probably say "won the lottery."

    Or "won millions on the lottery".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
