A Charlottetown woman reportedly won a massive $3-million jackpot after buying one of the last three Scratch’N Win tickets that were available in a store.

The winner, identified as Nancy Adams of Charlottetown, decided to try her luck before Christmas and reportedly bought one of the last three Scratch’N Win tickets that were available in a convenience store near her home, CTV Atlantic reported.

“I asked the cashier for one of these tickets, so she held up three of them and said, ‘I only have three left, which one do you want?’’’ said Adams. “So I picked the one in the middle, scratched it, and went over to the machine to check it.”

After scratching the ticket, Adams found it hard to read what was written on it as she wasn’t wearing her glasses at the time. She then asked a cashier at the store to scan and check the ticket for her and realized that she had won the $3 million jackpot.

“He said, ‘You’re a mega winner,’ and I near fainted,” said Adams. “I’m just so excited, but it still doesn’t feel real yet.”

When asked about what she plans to do with the prize money, Adams revealed that she intends to help her family members, as well as purchase a new car and buy her first home.

Meanwhile, two others, Susan Behi and Mehdi Shahsavari, of Charlottetown, also recently won $3 million each on the Triple Million Scratch’N Win ticket.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a Jacksonville man reportedly won a $1-million lottery prize just in time for the Christman holidays.

The winner, identified as Fidel Charles, 28, of Jacksonville, played the $20 scratch-off game called Gold Rush Limited and won $1 million, just in time for the Yuletide holidays. He reportedly bought the winning ticket at a Sunoco station in his hometown, WJAX-TV reported.

Charles decided to take the prize money as a one-time lump-sum payment and took home $795,000 after tax deductions.

In win, a Miami-Dade County man recently took home the $5-million top prize from Florida Lottery’s Gold Rush Limited game.

The winner, Arnulfo Chavez-Bermudez, 38, of Princeton, won the $5-million jackpot after playing the $20 scratch-off game.

Chavez-Bermudez bought the winning ticket from La Azteca De Oro, located at 406 North Krome Avenue in Homestead. He decided to take his winnings in a one-time lump-sum payment and took home $3.96 million after tax deductions, WPLG Local 10 reported.
