A South Florida woman was a multi-millionaire and didn't even know it.
The Florida Lottery folks said Tara Tuttle, seen in the above picture, won the $10 million top prize in the Billion Dollar Blockbuster scratch-off game.
But it seems, Tuttle Tuttle, 35, of Coral Springs, carried around the winning ticket for more than a month before she actually scratched it and noticed she won the big prize.
Tuttle told the lottery folks, “I had a feeling that it was a lucky ticket but I didn’t want to find out quite yet."
"Now I’m just overwhelmed and so excited to buy my family a home and look into options for opening a charitable organization for those affected with cancer,” said Tuttle.
Tuttle chose the one-time, lump-sum payment option of $6.5 million.
She bought the winning ticket at the Publix Supermarket at 2201 North University Drive in Coral Springs.
