TALLAHASSEE, FL (STL.News) The Florida Lottery announces that Lee Wingfield, 63, of Tallahassee, claimed a $1 million prize from the new 200X THE CASH Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $890,000.00.
Wingfield said he didn’t immediately realize he had won $1 million. “I originally thought I won $1,000, so I put the ticket in my pocket and went about my day. That night I realized my prize had a lot more than three zeros in it,” he said.
Wingfield purchased his winning ticket from Publix, located at 2111 Northeast Capital Circle in Tallahassee. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.
The $20 game, 200X THE CASH, launched in September and features more than $446 million in cash prizes, including ten top prizes of $5 million! The game’s overall odds of winning are 1-in-2.96.
