Earlier this month, the Florida Lottery reported a case of double luck after 74-year-old Geraldine Dozier-Gimblet of Florida came to claim her scratch-off lottery prize. Last year, she lost almost her entire life savings because she paid for her daughter’s successful breast cancer treatment.
And great luck also met her when she bought a lottery ticket at the beginning of the year, about a week after the doctors declared her daughter successfully cured. When she went to buy it for ten dollars (less than 220 crowns) in a store near her residence in the Florida city of Lakeland, the salesperson told her that he no longer had any lottery tickets, The Guardian reported.

However, Geraldine was undeterred and urged him to see if he still had some hidden somewhere. And indeed, one moose was eventually found. In addition, after wiping, it turned out that this lot wins the jackpot of 2 million dollars (over 42 million crowns).
According to a report by the Florida Lottery Company, the probability of winning the jackpot was one in 3.9 million, and the winner had it paid out in one lump sum, which under American lottery rules meant an amount of over $1.6 million (roughly 35 million crowns).
Even more happy than Geraldine herself was her daughter Lawrenceina Jackson, who, according to her words, did not take her mother’s help for granted at all. “What she did means a lot to me. I don’t know how I could repay her, I just have to love her,” Lawrenceina said, noting that her mother also took care of her throughout her illness.
