Florida Woman Wins Big On $5 Scratch Off From Gas Station
Congrats! Florida has a new $1 million lottery winner. Racquel Maxey from Kissimmee turned her $5 into $1 million by playing the Gold Rush Doubler scratch off game. The Florida Lottery confirmed her win earlier this week. Even though we’ve told you that Publix might be the luckiest place to buy your lotto ticket, Maxey bought hers at a 7-Eleven in Kissimmee.
Maxey decided to go with the lump sum payment of $685,000. We think this is the smart move as you never know what could happen tomorrow! We’d rather take the money and run than get a weekly payment. The 7-Eleven store will also benefit from this win. They will receive a $2,000 bonus for selling her the winning ticket.
There’s still plenty of money left to be won. According to the Florida Lottery’s website, there are 20 $1 million prizes remaining. You can also download the Florida Lottery app. It tells you how many top prizes have been won and what’s left!
