Aura’s win is confirmed by this article from NBC Miami:

It looks like you can no longer play the Florida Lotto via theLotter.

But you can still play more than 50 other lotteries from around the world using their service.

How much money did Aura win?

The jackpot was for $30 million, but Aura received $21 million.

I believe this was because she opted to get paid in one lump sum rather than receive annual payments.

According to my research, a ticket for the Florida Lotto usually costs $2, but Aura would have paid more like $5 for her ticket via theLotter.

How did Aura get started?

Aura signed up for theLotter and played for “about two months” before hitting the jackpot.

Please do keep in mind that the odds of winning a lottery like this are not good. Aura is one of the lucky few. Please gamble responsibly.

What type of online business does Aura have?

Well, it’s hard to call it a business, which is why in our framework this would fall into the Gambling category, and we’d consider it a Level X online business.
