James Kinder, 38, of Jacksonville, claimed a $1 million top prize from a Fastest Road To $1,000,000 scratch-off game.

Kinder had the winning ticket sitting on his fireplace for weeks before he remembered it was there. “I came across the un-scratched ticket while cleaning the house; when I scratched it, I realized it was actually a $1 million winner! I wish I would have found it sooner!”

Kinder purchased the ticket from Circle K, located at 3051 Monument Road in Jacksonville. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission.

The $30 game, The Fastest Road to $1,000,000, launched in February and features 155 top prizes of $1,000,000 and over $948 million in cash prizes. The game’s overall odds of winning are one-in-2.79.

Kinder chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $790,000.00.
