Sheelah Ryan, winner of Florida's record $55.1 million Lotto jackpot last month, passed up the chance to claim another prize her extraordinary luck brought her: a blender she won at a raffle.
Her name was drawn for a door prize at an open house held for a new office of Winter Springs' Prudential Bowles Realty, where she used to work, said owner Wil Bowles.
By the time her name was drawn Friday, Ryan had left, and another name was selected for the prize.
"I don't think missing it will worry her," said Bowles.
Her former boss also disclosed that Ryan has bought a $260,000 house through the real estate firm she quit after winning the nation's largest lottery prize.
Bowles said Ryan paid cash for the house, the location of which he would not disclose.
