Vera Saykina, of Springfield, won the seven-figure sum playing the "Billion Dollar Extravaganza," a $50 scratch-off lottery ticket. 

She chose the lump sum payment of $1.3 million (before taxes) rather than the annuity. 

Saykina bought the ticket at a Shell Mart gas station in Springfield. The store will get a $20,000 bonus for the sale.
