TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A Florida man ended up a millionaire after a stop at a grocery store landed him with a prize-winning lottery ticket.
The Florida Lottery said Michael Zoratti, 59, of Hobe Sounds won a $1 million prize from a scratch-off ticket he got from a local Winn Dixie.
Zoratti chose to receive his prize money as a lump-sum payment of $820,000. The Winn Dixie will get a $2,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The ticket came from the $50 games, 500X THE CASH, which allows ticket buyers to compete for a top prize of $25 million.
