Fort Lauderdale woman claims $2M Mega Money jackpot

 Hannelore Huber, 70, of Fort Lauderdale, claimed the Sept. 20 Mega Money jackpot of $2 million at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee.

 Huber chose the one-time, lump-sum payment option for her winnings of $1,515,668.42.

  The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at Super Stop, located at 1801 NE 45th St.  The retailer received a bonus commission of $1,000 for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.

It's the 39th jackpot-winning ticket sold in Broward County since Mega Money became a permanent Florida Lottery Terminal game in 2004.

   The next MEGA MONEY drawing will be at 11:15 tonight with a $500,000 jackpot. The drawings are broadcast on 17 carrier stations throughout the state including WPLG-Ch. 10 in Miami
