Same store, different winner: Florida man wins big on lottery ticket purchased at Publix


Florida – A Florida man has claimed a life-changing $1 million prize from the Florida Lottery’s $1,000,000 A YEAR FOR LIFE SPECTACULAR Scratch-Off game. Opting for a one-time, lump-sum payment, Kirkland walked away with $640,000.

A Lucky Purchase at Publix

Kirkland bought the lucky ticket at a Publix supermarket on 482 East Altamonte Drive in Altamonte Springs. This particular store will get a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the lucky ticket that secured Kirkland’s million-dollar prize.

The $50 Scratch-Off game that Kirkland won launched in February and offers players the enticing possibility of winning $1 million a year for life, among other prizes. With two top prizes of $1 million a year for life and 234 prizes of $1 million, the game boasts more than $1.6 billion in cash prizes, with the odds of winning stand at 1-in-4.50.

Scratch-Off games play an important part in the Florida Lottery’s offerings, making up about 72 percent of ticket sales for the fiscal year 2022-2023. These games have not only awarded over $59.5 billion in prizes but have also created nearly 2,000 millionaires. Beyond the winnings, Scratch-Off games have contributed over $18.39 billion to Florida’s Educational Enhancement Trust Fund, aiding state education initiatives.
