A Coral Springs, Florida, woman has claimed a $10 million lottery win ? the largest haul of the year so far in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Tara Tuttle, 35, of Coral Springs, claimed the $10 million top prize in the Billion Dollar Blockbuster Scratch-off game at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee. Her ticket cost $20.

Despite the high cost of scratch tickets like the one claimed by Tuttle, Lottery officials note that scratch-off payback is about 70 percent compared to 50 percent for the draw games.

Tuttle told lottery officials she carried around the winning ticket for more than a month before she actually scratched it and noticed she won the $10 million top prize.

"I had a feeling that it was a lucky ticket but I didn't want to find out quite yet," she told them. She told them she's going to look into starting a charitable organization for those affected with cancer, but couldn't be reached for further details.

$10 million isn't all that much really. Considering almost half will be taken in taxes and fees. You're left with $5 million that most people would quit their job and splurge...and be broke in 6 months.

I'm more surprised how she waited 1 month before scratching it. You would think you would do it right away after buying it.
