LAKE CITY WOMAN CLAIMS TOP PRIZE IN THE
LUCKY $200,000 A YEAR FOR LIFE SCRATCH-OFF GAME

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery today announced that Wendy Holmes, 46, of Lake City, claimed a top prize in the LUCKY $200,000 A YEAR FOR LIFE Scratch-Off game at Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. She chose to receive her winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $3,202,017.41.

"All of this feels so unreal to me! I had to check my ticket several times to make sure it was a real winner," said Wendy. "I'm so excited, but I'm still in shock. I can't believe that I won all this money."

Holmes purchased her winning Scratch-Off ticket at Stop N' Go Food Store, located at 1263 U.S. Highway 90 West in Lake City. The retailer will receive an $8,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.
