At the pharmacy last February 14th, Joyce Denrenzis felt the urge to play the $5 Wheel of Fortune Game so she bought two. Her mother, thinking her birthday was Feb. 12, turned to her and said she was going to win a lot of money. Mother turned out to be right after Derenzis boyfriend scratched off the tickets.
She later chose a single payment option of around $536,058 net of all taxes. Derenzis says she wants to use the money to help her children and give to a humane shelter.
