MIAMI MAN BEGINS MARCH A MILLIONAIRE

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery announces that Felipe Castell, 69, of Miami, claimed a $1 million MEGA MILLIONS® prize at the Gainesville District Office from the drawing held on January 15, 2021. The winning Quick Pick ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers, but did not match the Mega Ball.

Castell purchased the ticket at Tom Thumb, located at 18400 Southwest 177th Avenue in Miami. The retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus commission for selling the $1 million MEGA MILLIONS ticket.

Since joining MEGA MILLIONS in 2013, the game has generated more than $650 million for education, and has awarded more than $719.5 million in prizes to 55.2 million players. The next MEGA MILLIONS drawing will be held tomorrow, March 2, at 11:00 p.m. ET with an estimated $43 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.
