Self-Employed Long Beach Woman Hits the Jackpot on $3,000,000 Frenzy 
Diana Orozco of Long Beach has claimed the top prize of $3,000,000 on the $3,000,000 Frenzy scratch-off game. Orozco, who is self-employed in the clothing sale industry, said she likes to the play New York Lottery scratch-off games every day. 
 
On December 31, Orozco asked her husband to go to the store for her to buy a $3,000,000 Frenzy ticket. 
 
“I wanted that ticket because it’s a new game, and I’ve been playing it for about a week.” 
 
Her husband scratched the ticket right away and called Orozco to tell her the good news. 
 
“He said ‘Oh my God! You won!’ and I said, ‘Won what?’ and he said ‘The jackpot!’ I didn’t believe him. I thought he was joking. But when he got home and showed me the ticket, I knew right away that I won $3 million dollars.” 
 
Orozco said she is a bit overwhelmed by her jackpot win. “Sometimes you might feel like you are not going to win, but I am a true believer now.” 
 
Orozco has chosen to receive her prize as a one-time lump-sum payment of $2,410,000, netting her $1,594,938 after required withholdings. 
 
Orozco’s plans for the money include buying a house, a car and to save for the future. 
 
The New York Lottery contributed $138,659,047 in Lottery Aid To Education to school districts throughout Nassau County during fiscal year 2015-2016.
