A Florida man spends $50 and wins $1 Million in the Florida Lottery.

65-year-old Jerrold Ott purchased a new $50 ‘500X The Cash’ scratch-off ticket at a Cape Coral Publix. He won $1 million.

The North Fort Myers man chose to take his winnings as a lump sum of $820,000 at the Florida Lottery Fort Myers District Office.

The Publix store, located at 1735 Northeast Pine Island Rd. in Cape Coral, will receive a $2,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The ‘500X The Cash’ scratch-off game was launched at the end of February, with prizes ranging from $50 to $25 million. There are two $25 million top prizes, and both are still out there. The game began with 160 $1 million prizes, and 152 are still available.
