Mother of 4 among Florida Lottery raffle winners

Florida LotteryFlorida Lottery: Mother of 4 among Florida Lottery raffle winners

The Florida Lottery raffled of 10 tickets worth $1 million Monday as part of their Holiday Millionaire Raffle.

Lottery computers picked 130 winning numbers from the 1.25 million tickets for $20 each sold in its first-ever raffle.

Twenty tickets are worth $100,000 and holders of the other 100 tickets can claim $10,000.

Michelle Strother, of Deltona, was one of the winners to claim the $1 million prize. The mother of four said she was elated when she heard the news.

People at work told her she was crazy to buy the tickets, but 26-year-old Strother is having the last laugh. The tickets went on sale at 6 a.m. Nov. 20.

      " people at work told her she was crazy for buying the ticket "

      She is proof you can't win it unless you're in it.

      I wish her nothing but the best...

      Congratulations on your new lifestyle   !
