Tampa woman wins $3M in lottery scratch-off game

TALLAHASSEE — A Tampa woman has claimed the top prize of $3 million in a Monopoly Millionaire scratch-off game, the Florida Lottery said Wednesday.

Cotoya Upshaw, 30, chose to receive the winnings in a one-time, lump-sum payment of $2,256,054.22, the agency said.

Upshaw purchased her winning ticket in the $20 scratch-off game from a store in Live Oak.

She could not be reached for comment Wednesday. State records says she's a certified nursing assistant and her Facebook page says she once lived in Live Oak, in North Florida.

There are four top prizes of $3 million remaining in the game, the lottery said. The game's overall odds of winning are 1 in 2.93.
