LAKE COUNTY MAN IN DISBELIEF AFTER WINNING $1 MILLION

~ Player Wins Top Prize Playing THE FASTEST ROAD TO $1,000,000 Scratch-Off Game ~

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery announces that Nicholas Tann, 33, of Clermont, claimed a $1 million top prize from THE FASTEST ROAD TO $1,000,000 Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $790,000.00.

Tann says he bought the winning Scratch-Off ticket when he got off work, but he didn't expect the ticket to be a top prize winner, "My jaw dropped and a rush came over me - I couldn't believe I just won $1 million!"

Tann purchased his winning ticket from Wawa, located at 16126 Greater Groves Boulevard in Clermont. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

The $30 game, THE FASTEST ROAD TO $1,000,000, launched in February 2020 and features 155 top prizes of $1,000,000 and over $948 million in cash prizes! The game's overall odds of winning are one-in-2.79.

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.
