TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A South Florida woman is pocketing over $2 million after hitting all six numbers in a Florida Lotto drawing last month.

55-year-old Nelia Troia of Pompano Beach was the sole winner of the $3 million jackpot in the drawing held on June 30, 2018.

She purchased the winning ticket at a Publix on North Federal Highway in Lighthouse Point.  That store will earn a $20,000 commission for selling the winning ticket.

Troia chose to receive her winnings as a one-time payment of $2,021,962.00.

You could win even bigger in Florida Lottery drawings this week.  Wednesday night's Powerball drawing has a possible jackpot of $90 million.  Then Friday night's Mega Millions drawing has a jackpot of $340 million on the line.
