Angela Caravella of Kansas City, Missouri, bought a few scratch-offs to pass the time after her flight from Tallahassee, Florida, was canceled and she ended up winning big, WKMG reported.
Florida Lottery officials said the 51-year-old bought the Fastest Road to $1,000,000 scratch-off ticket from Publix at 1220 Kingsway Road in Brandon, Florida.
“I had a feeling something bizarre was going to happen after my flight was cancelled unexpectedly,” Caravella told the Florida Lottery. “I bought a few scratch-off tickets to pass the time and just like that – I won $1 million!”
Caravella chose to take the one-time, lump-sum payment of $790,000, according to a news release about her win.
The supermarket location, a Publix store, receives $2,000 for selling the winning ticket.
