  • A Florida woman became a millionaire after winning two lottery tickets on the same day. 
  • Susan Fitton, 64, won the Sept. 14 drawings, the Florida Lottery said.
  • The Prip Mart where she purchased the tickets will receive a $10,000 bonus. 

A 64-year-old Florida woman collected a significant cash prize after winning two $2 million lottery tickets on the same day, according to KIRO-TV.

The woman, Susan Fitton,  bought the Mega Millions with Megaflier tickets Prip Mart in Boca Rotan, Florida, according to a Florida Lottery news release. Officials said Fitton’s prize win came from a drawing last month, on Sept. 14. 

According to the news release, both of her identical tickets ” matched all five of the white ball numbers but did not match the Mega Ball,” according to the news release.

The Megaflier add-on feature helped boost Fitton’s winnings, the Miami Herald reported. 

“The Megaplier number for the Sept. 14 drawing was 2, which doubled Fitton’s prize from $1 million to $2 million,” Meredyth Hope Norman, communications manager at the Florida Lottery, told the Miami Herald. “But she bought two tickets with the same numbers, so that became $4 million.”

The store where she purchased the tickets received a $10,000 bonus, the news release said. 

One must be extremely lucky to win a  $1 million Mega Millions prize. As WPTV reported, the odds are one in 12,607,306.
