The Florida Lottery, like all state lotteries, gives you a chance to win. But there’s a reason that state run lotteries are sometimes referred to as a “tax on the poor”. The odds of winning just aren’t great. But don’t tell that to 18-year-old Daniela Leon Ruz who just won a Florida scratch off called $500 A Week For Life. The Florida lottery lists the odds of winning all its prizes and this prize is listed at six million to one. Stepping down to the next prize in the $500 A Week For Life game, winning just a thousand bucks is a daunting 1-in-80,000.

Leon Ruz bought her ticket at a supermarket in Orlando, a city that likes to claim magic happens there. It sure does.
