Osborne said he had previously bought a $5 lottery ticket that won $50, so he used that money to buy another ticket.

“I was at the airport with my daughter. We were going to see our family in Florida, but the flight was delayed. It was delayed so many times that I decided to go back home. My daughter stayed and flew to Florida,” Osborne said. “If I hadn’t left the airport, I would never have bought that ticket!”

Osborne said she scratched the ticket while in the store’s parking lot and was shocked when she realized she had won the jackpot.
