When Juanita Corder bought a $20 Lucky Loot instant ticket from Mother Tucker’s Gas Station on Sharon Avenue, she never expected much. The biggest prize she and her husband had won up to that point has only been $5,000.
After scratching off her ticket, she had a pleasant surprise when it won the top prize of $2,000,000. She later chose a single payment of $1,000,000, which nets her $710,000 after taxes, over an option which would have paid her $100,000 a year for 20 years.
She says she will use the money to pay off her bills and buy a home. She has no plans of quitting work just yet.
