PORT CHARLOTTE MAN TAKES A CHANCE AND WINS $1 MILLION IN
THE $10,000,000 WORLD CLASS CASH SCRATCH-OFF GAME

TALLAHASSEE -The Florida Lottery announces that Gary McClelland, 56, of Port Charlotte, claimed a $1 million prize in the $10,000,000 WORLD CLASS CASH Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $748,000.00.

McClelland purchased his winning ticket from Publix, located at 24051 Peachland Boulevard in Port Charlotte. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

While McClelland is a frequent FLORDIA LOTTO® player, he said he rarely buys Scratch-Off tickets. "I just decided to buy one while waiting at Publix, and when I got home and scratched it, I couldn?t believe I had actually won!"

The new $25 game, $10,000,000 WORLD CLASS CASH, launched in February and features more than $549 million in total cash prizes, including two top prizes of $10 million and 46 prizes of $1 million! Overall odds of winning are one-in-2.89.

Scratch-Off games are an important part of the Lottery's portfolio of games, comprising approximately 65 percent of ticket sales and generating more than $734 million for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) in fiscal year 2015-16.
