TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery announces that Kenneith Rose, of Casselberry, claimed a $2 million MEGA MILLIONS® prize from the drawing held on January 19, 2021 using a secured drop box located at the Orlando District Office. The winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers, but did not match the Mega Ball.
Rose purchased his Quick Pick winning ticket at Publix, located at 3385 South U.S. Highway 1792 in Casselberry. The retailer will receive a $5,000 bonus commission for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.
Since joining MEGA MILLIONS in 2013, the game has generated more than $665 million for education, and has awarded more than $726 million in prizes to 56 million players. The next MEGA MILLIONS drawing will be held Tuesday, February 2, at 11:00 p.m. ET with an estimated $42 million jackpot.
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.
