BOCA RATON, Fla. – Whatever she went into Publix to pick up, she surely didn’t expect to walk out with a six-figure lottery jackpot.
Marilyn Manzi, of Boca Raton, will have some extra spending money this holiday season after claiming a $275,000 prize from the Jackpot Triple Play drawing Dec. 8, Florida Lottery announced.
She decided to take her winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $236,375.29, lottery officials said.
Manzi bought the winning ticket from the Publix at 3775 Woolbright Road in Boynton Beach. The store gets a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the lucky ticket.
The Jackpot Triple Play game costs $1 and gives players three sets of numbers to match with the winning combination.
