Florida Lottery: Lee Wingfield of Tallahassee Claimed $1 Million Prize

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.
