Panama Woman Lands $30 Million Florida Lotto Jackpot Thanks to theLotterThursday August 31st 2017
A woman from Panama is looking forward to enjoying her retirement after landing a Florida Lotto jackpot worth $30 million. Aura Dominguez Canto correctly matched the numbers 3, 10, 20, 29, 35 and 50 in the drawing on Wednesday July 19th, but managed to land her sizeable eight-figure sum without touching a ticket and before even entering the U.S.
The 60-year-old had been longing to quit work for some time, but simply could not afford to be without a job. Eager to find a solution to her dilemma, Aura claims she happened upon a news article from across the Atlantic that provided her with the inspiration she had been looking for. The story in question concerned Britain’s youngest lottery millionaire Jane Park and how her life had been changed so dramatically following her encounter with good fortune. Desperate to follow in the Scottish EuroMillions winner’s footsteps, Aura signed up with online lottery concierge service theLotter.com.
It wasn’t long until the Panamanian’s plan paid off. After opting to play every Florida Lotto drawing in the month of July with the same numbers, the lucky sexagenarian found that she had correctly matched the digits required to collect a $30 million jackpot. The Panama City resident played a ticket purchased by an employee of the concierge service at Panhandle Package, a liquor store in the town of Campbellton. News of the win soon reached Aura, when Adrian, a representative of theLotter.com, made contact with her all the way from London.
Following a month of waiting, Aura was flown to Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee to collect her oversized check. Now, with such a vast sum of cash in the bank, she can finally realize her dream: “I’m a retired woman...I continued working because I have my children, but I want to rest, really!”, she told lottery officials. Aura opted to take the cash lump sum option and received $20.9 million.
