Jeffery Brown, 57, of Pembroke Pines, claimed a $1 million prize in the 25th Anniversary Edition Millionaire Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee.
One top prize of $5 million and six $1 million prizes remain to be won in the game. Brown chose to receive the winnings in a one-time, lump-sum payment of $827,855.66.
He purchased his winning Scratch-Off ticket at Kwik Stop, located at 6995 West Mcnab Road in Tamarac.
The 25th Anniversary Scratch-Off ticket, reminiscent of the Lottery’s first Scratch-Off game, Millionaire, launched in celebration of 25 years of the Florida Lottery giving back to players. The game features over $290 million in total cash prizes, including 25 prizes ranging from $1 million to $5 million, and the highest prize payout percentage ever in Florida Lottery history.
The Florida Lottery offers approximately 60 Scratch-Off games at any given time through vending machines or counter displays at more than 13,000 retailers statewide, lottery officials say.
