Pensioner Wins in Online Lotto
Aura Dominguez Canto was an ordinary woman from Panama who continued to work to help support her children. At the age of 60 she was ready for retirement but was unable to due to responsibilities. It’s a story many of us can relate to, working hard to support our families and survive in a tough economy.
In June 2017 Aura stumbled across the story of Jane Park, a 17 year old Scottish teen who won the Euromillions jackpot of £1 million in 2013. Inspired by the teen’s rags to riches story, she researched how she could enter lotteries from overseas. She signed up for an online lotto site and chose to play every draw in the Florida Lotto for one month straight, using the same numbers – 3, 10, 20, 29, 35, and 50. The first three weeks brought her no luck, but she persevered. In her final week, with the final ticket of her Florida Lotto package, she struck gold!
On the 19th July 2017, Aura Dominguez Canto won the $30 million Florida Lotto jackpot, without even having to leave her country. In the early hours of the morning, just a few hours after the draw, representatives of the online lotto site called her to give her the good news – Aura was now a very wealthy woman! She claimed her winnings on Wednesday 16th August by flying to the lottery’s headquarters in Tallahassee and taking home a stellar $20 948 543.98 after taxes.
Having struggled financially for most of her life and working hard in order to support her children, she said that she was very much looking forward to retiring and getting some well-deserved rest, “I would like to help people. Everyone has dreams. Now, life has changed. No more work. Thank God for that.”
