Having your flight canceled can really ruin your day but not when you then win $1 million because of it.
Angela Caravella of Kansas City, Missouri, bought a few scratch-offs to pass the time after her flight was canceled and she ended up a big winner, Florida Lottery officials said.
The 51-year-old woman purchased the Fastest Road to $1,000,000 scratch-off ticket from Publix at 1220 Kingsway Road in Brandon, Florida, officials said.
“I had a feeling something bizarre was going to happen after my flight was cancelled unexpectedly,” Caravella told the Florida Lottery. “I bought a few Scratch-Off tickets to pass the time and just like that – I won $1 million!”
Caravella chose to take the one-time, lump-sum payment of $790,000, according to officials.
Publix receives $2,000 for selling the winning ticket.
