(CNN) - She's only 18 years old, but a woman has a set salary for life.

Daniela Leon Ruz of Orlando won a weekly payday off a $1 scratch-off ticket.

The Florida Lottery says Ruz played the game, $500 a Week for Life, at a grocery store.

Her odds were a 1-in-6 million chance of winning.

She beat the odds and scratched her way to score the top prize.

Instead of taking the lump sum, the teen chose to receive her winnings in annual payments $26,000 a year for the rest of her life.
