Karen Scott from Waverly, Ohio, has won $1 million playing the Ohio Lottery's Instant Millions scratch-off game.
The Ohio Lottery Commission announced the news on Tuesday, April 15, and said Scott had decided to take her money as a one-off lump sum instead of the annuity payments.
Had she taken the annuity payments she would have received $50,000 a year for the next 20 years. Taking the cash option nets her $355,000 after state and federal taxes.
This is the second time Scott has got lucky with a lottery scratcher. The first time was in 1994 when she won $20,000 playing Holiday Cash.
