Daughter buys mom $16M winning Lotto ticket

 Now, this is what a good daughter does: Magali Prins Nogueira, of Miami Beach, claimed the $16 million Florida Lotto  jackpot from the drawing held on March 30.

How'd she get the ticket?

Her daughter gave it to her as a gift, according to lottery officials. The daughter bought two tickets and gave one to her mom, who said she plans to buy a house with her winnings. (Must be a big house...)

Prins Nogueira chose to receive her winnings in a one-time, lump-sum payment of $11,466,184.40.

 Publix, located at 9400 Harding Avenue in Surfside, received a bonus commission of $65,000 for selling the ticket.

The next drawing will be at 11:15 p.m. Saturday.
