PALM COAST, Fla. – A Palm Coast woman won the top prize of $500,00 in the Monopoly Florida Edition scratch-off game just two weeks before her 21st birthday.

Sabrina Cleveland purchased the winning ticket at a 7-Eleven at 220 Palm Coast Parkway Northeast.

“I was in the store getting change and had a couple of extra dollars, so I decided to buy a ticket," Cleveland said. "When I scratched it and saw it was a $500,000 winner, I couldn’t believe it. I just started shaking.”

The game, which launched July 5, features more than $84 million in prizes, with overall chances of a win at one in 3.98.

Cleveland said she wants to put her winnings toward good use.

“The first thing I’m definitely going to do is buy a car, and possibly use some of the money towards buying a house,” she said.
