A Bradenton man won $1 million from a Florida Lottery scratch-off ticket he bought at the Stop N Pick, 4240 Cortez Road.
Paul Catt, 67, claimed the $1 million prize in the 25th Anniversary Edition MILLIONAIRE Scratch-Off game at lottery headquarters in Tallahassee.
Catt, a facilities assistant at Trinity United Methodist Church, chose a one-time, lump-sum payment of $832,449.66.
There are still two top prizes of $5 million and another 15 $1 million prizes that have yet to be claimed in the game.
The special 25th Anniversary Scratch-Off ticket, is designed to be reminiscent of the Lottery’s very first Scratch-Off game, MILLIONAIRE. The game offers $290 million in total prizes, including 25 prizes ranging from $1 million to $5 million.
From September 25 through December 11, players may enter their non-winning MILLIONAIRE tickets in second chance promotion on the Lottery’s website. In each of the five second chance drawings, the first prize winner will be awarded a trip for two to the Lottery’s 25th Anniversary Celebration, where all five winners will participate in a live MILLIONAIRE Million Dollar Giveaway.
One player will win $1 million live on-stage, and the other four participants will each win $250,000. For more information, visit the Florida Lottery website.
