MANATEE COUNTY WOMAN PLANS TO PURCHASE A HOUSE
AFTER FINDING HER "MONEY TREE"

~ Player Wins $1 Million From the $1,000,000 MONEY TREE Scratch-Off Game ~

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery announces that Baneza Brown, 33, of Palmetto, claimed a $1 million top prize from the $1,000,000 MONEY TREE Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. She chose to receive her winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $880,000.00.

Brown said she plans to use her winnings to buy a house. "I'm so excited to move into a place with more space for me and my family," she shared.

Brown purchased her winning ticket from 7-Eleven, located at 2011 Cortez Road West in Bradenton. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

The $5 game, $1,000,000 MONEY TREE, launched in October 2020 and features more than $50 million in cash prizes, including 160 prizes of $10,000 to $1 million. The game's overall odds of winning are one-in-4.00.

Scratch-Off games are an important part of the Lottery's portfolio of games, comprising approximately 75 percent of ticket sales and generating more than $1 billion for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) in fiscal year 2019-20.

Florida Lottery offices are currently open to the public by appointment only for players with prizes valued at $600 or more. Payers can request a claim appointment at Headquarters and district offices through the Lottery's website, at www.flalottery.com/howToClaim. Players can still utilize the secured drop box located at each district office or mail tickets to Florida Lottery Headquarters or a district office.
