Florida teen wins $26K a year for life with $1 scratch-off

Florida Lottery

Florida Lottery officials said Daniela Leon Ruz, 18, chose to claim her winnings in annual payments of $26,000 for each year of her life.

Daniela Leon Ruz paid $1 for a scratch-off ticket at Publix.

Instead of opting for the lump sum, Ruz plans to collect her winnings in annual payments of $26,000.

The investment turned out to be a good one.


Her winning ticket is one of six top prizes of $500 a week for life.

Holahan purchased the $25 scratch-off game at Buddy Boys Country store on 8430 Country Road 13 in St. Augustine, the Florida Lottery said. Florida Lottery says the odds of winning this are 1 in 5 million.

But this teen beat the odds and scratched her way to score the top prize.
