TAMPA, Fla. – Wanda Brana didn’t take long to plan how she would spend her winnings after hitting for a $1 million prize on a scratch-off.

“I have been renting for years, but now I’m finally able to afford a house for my family and me,” Brana told Florida Lottery.

The 55-year-old Brana, of Tampa, scored the payout from the $5,000,000 Luck scratch-off game. She took her winnings as a lump-sum payment of $760,000.

Lottery officials say Brana purchased her $20 ticket from Rome Food Mart at 1615 West Sligh Avenue in Tampa. That store gets a $2,000 bonus commission.

Beyond the $1 million prize that Brana won, the $5,000,000 Luck game offers a shot at six top prizes worth $5 million.
