Florida Woman Scoops her Second Lottery Win

Florida Lottery scratch-off games have proved to be just the ticket for Villages resident, Tommye Bucklin. The seventy-year-old's scratching habit earned her a cool $1 million in October 2012 and the lucky lady has just scratched out a second big win of $500,000.

Bucklin's first win came from the Florida Lottery's 25th Anniversary Edition Millionaire Scratch-off game and she took her winnings as a one-off lump-sum payment of $824,611.19.

Her latest lottery windfall comes courtesy of a $20 Gold Rush Tripler ticket she purchased from at the Winn-Dixie at 944 Bichara Boulevard in Lady Lake.
