PUNTA GORDA MAN SURPRISES WIFE WITH A $1 MILLION
WINNING SCRATCH-OFF TICKET ON MOTHER'S DAY

~ Player Claims a Top Prize From the New CASH CLUB Scratch-Off Game! ~

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery announces that Martin Sullivan, 56, of Punta Gorda, claimed a $1 million top prize from the new CASH CLUB Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $880,000.00.

Sullivan says he sent a picture of the winning Scratch-Off ticket to his wife as soon as he found out he was a winner, "She didn't believe that I won $1 million - she thought I was playing a prank on her for Mother's Day! She was very excited when she realized I wasn't joking."

Sullivan purchased his winning ticket from Deep Creek Discount Convenience Store, located at 24901 Sandhill Boulevard in Punta Gorda. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

CASH CLUB features ten top prizes of $1 million and gives players the chance to win $20 to $500 instantly with four additional bonus plays! When players scratch a 5X or 10X symbol, they can win five or ten times the prize shown. This $10 game offers more than $146 million in total cash prizes and the overall odds are 1-in-3.38.

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.
