TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A $10 lottery purchase at a Winn Dixie has paid off handsomely for a Bradenton man.
The Florida Lottery says 60-year-old Richard Walker purchased a scratch-off ticket in the $2,000,000 CASHWORD game at the Winn Dixie store on 53rd Avenue E at 9th Street E in Bradenton.
That ticket earned him one of six top prizes of $2 million.
Walker chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $1,475,000.00.
The retailer earned a $4,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The $10 Scratch-Off game, $2,000,000 CASHWORD, launched in August 2017 and features six top prizes of $2 million and over 6,000 prizes between $1,000 to $2 million.
