Sometimes it pays to give in to the impulse to play the lottery – Shirley Robinson of Wellington can attest to that!
Robinson had gone into the Right Way Food Store in Orlando and bought a Monopoly Florida lottery instant ticket, even though she really had no intention of doing so. When she scratched off the ticket at home, she was shocked to find it a $5 million winner. She later chose to receive the prize as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $3,840,000.
The outlet which sold the winning ticket received a bonus of $10,000.
