MARINE CORPS VETERAN LUCKS OUT PLAYING THE
$5,000,000 LUCK SCRATCH-OFF GAME

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery (Lottery) announces that James Musselwhite, of Sarasota, claimed a $1 million prize from the $5,000,000 LUCK Scratch-Off game at Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $760,000.00.

When asked if he had any big plans, Musselwhite shared that he had already traveled the world while serving in the United States Marine Corps. "I guess the only thing I really want now is a new golf cart," he said. Musselwhite was joined by his family at Lottery Headquarters to celebrate his big win.

Musselwhite purchased his winning ticket from Circle A Food Place, located at 3637 Bahia Vista Street in Sarasota. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

The $20 game, $5,000,000 LUCK, launched in September 2019 and features more than $329 million in cash prizes, including six top prizes of $5 million. The game's overall odds of winning are one-in-2.97.

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 $1.3 billion for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) in fiscal year 2020-21.
