ALTAMONTE SPRINGS MAN WINS $1 MILLION
PLAYING THE GOLD RUSH SUPREME SCRATCH-OFF GAME

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery (Lottery) announces that Tavores Tymes, 46, of Altamonte Spring claimed a $1 million top prize from the $5 GOLD RUSH SUPREME Scratch-Off game at Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $880,000.00.

"I was having a bad day and called up an old friend who sent me $20.00, Tymes told the Lottery. The next morning, I used the cash to buy a Scratch-Off ticket and just like that, I won! I immediately drove up to Tallahassee to claim my $1 million prize!" Tymes went on to share that he plans to invest his money in property by growing crops and living off the land.

Tymes purchased his winning ticket from Wawa, located at 1390 East Altamonte Drive in Altamonte Springs. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

The $5 GOLD RUSH SUPREME game launched in January and features more than $199 million in cash prizes, including 24 top prizes of $1 million! The game's overall odds of winning are one-in-3.97.

Players can also enter non-winning GOLD RUSH SUPREME tickets into the Gold Rush Supreme Bonus Play Promotion! In each of the eight drawings, one player will win a growing jackpot prize starting at $10,000, five players will each win $5,000, 15 players will each win $1,000, and 20 players will each win $500.
