TALLAHASSEE MAN DISCOVERS HE'S CARRYING A
$1 MILLION WINNING TICKET IN HIS POCKET

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery announces that Lee Wingfield, 63, of Tallahassee, claimed a $1 million prize from the new 200X THE CASH Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $890,000.00.

Wingfield said he didn't immediately realize he had won $1 million. "I originally thought I won $1,000, so I put the ticket in my pocket and went about my day. That night I realized my prize had a lot more than three zeros in it," he said.

Wingfield purchased his winning ticket from Publix, located at 2111 Northeast Capital Circle in Tallahassee. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

The $20 game, 200X THE CASH, launched in September and features more than $446 million in cash prizes, including ten top prizes of $5 million! The game's overall odds of winning are 1-in-2.96.

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.

Florida Lottery offices are currently open to the public by appointment only for players with prizes valued at $5,000 or more. Players can request a claim appointment at Headquarters and district offices through the Lottery's website, at www.flalottery.com/howToClaim. Players with prizes valued $600 - $4,999 can still utilize the secured drop box located at each district office or mail tickets to Florida Lottery Headquarters or a district office.
