HOMESTEAD, Fla. – A Miami-Dade woman’s trip to a Broward grocery store turned out to be a lucrative one.
That’s because the $20 scratch-off that 52-year-old Georgina Narvaez bought there was worth a $5 million top prize.
Narvaez, of Homestead, has decided to take her winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $3.55 million, Florida Lottery officials say.
She bought the winning $5,000,000 Gold Rush Classic ticket at Mr. Grocer (11451 West Oakland Park Blvd.) in Sunrise.
The store receives a $10,000 bonus commission.
