Florida Woman Who Spent Her Life Savings On Her Daughter’s Cancer Treatment Wins $2 Million On Scratch Off Game

A day after her daughter had finished cancer treatment, where she spent her entire life savings, Florida woman Geraldine Gimblet won a $2 million lottery jackpot.

Gimblet, who is from Lakeland, had stopped at a gas station hoping to purchase one of the crossword “$2,000,000 BONUS CASHWORD Scratch-Off game” lottery tickets, but the clerk said they were all out.

Instead of taking her losses, Gimblet asked for the worker to check again.

“At first the gas station clerk thought there were no tickets left, but I asked him to double check because I like the crossword games the best,” Gimblet said according to the lottery’s press release. “He found the last one!”

In CASHWORD, players are given 20 letters and three separate games, where they must match three or more words in each game with their letters and win the cash prize listed, with the chance of doubling it with a “MONEYBAG” symbol.

After winning the game’s top prize, Gimblet chose to take a one-time, lump-sum payment of $1,645,000, which had a 1-in-3.9 million chance of cashing, according to the lottery’s website.
