Angela Caravella, 51, of Kansas City, told Florida Lottery officials she spent more time than expected in Florida that flight was canceled.

”I had a feeling something bizarre was going to happen after my flight was canceled unexpectedly,” Caravella said. ”I bought a few scratch-off tickets to pass the time and just like that — I won $1 million!”

Caravella scored the top prize on a The Fastest Road to $1,000,000 scratch-off ticket purchased from the Publix store in Brandon.

The winner visited lottery headquarters in Tallahassee and chose to take her winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $790,000.
