Store owners repeatedly have big wins in Florida Lottery

Each year the Florida Lottery pays out billions of dollars in prizes. But records obtained by WFTS-Tampa show some people are winning a thousand dollars or more time and time again.

Of the Tampa Bay area's top 10 winners of scratch off games, nine had something in common. They were all affiliated with retail stores that sell lottery tickets.

Pinellas County convenience store owner Chirag Parmar once claimed five $1,000  prizes in only one day. His mom once claimed 12 wins in a day. Together they had 47 prizes of a thousand dollars or more in just three years.
