TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A Miami man has claimed one of the top prizes in a $15 million scratch-off game from the Florida Lottery.
Lottery officials say 51-year-old Gilberto Concepcion of Miami bought his $30 ticket at the Fresco Y Mas store in the 15000 block of SW 72nd Avenue. The lucky ticket turned out to be one of six grand prize tickets in the game.
He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $10,440,000.00.
The retailer will receive a $30,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.
Just last month a Fort Myers man won a $1 million prize in the same game on a ticket purchased at Universal Supermarket.
A much bigger jackpot is on the line Wednesday night as the multi-state PowerBall game is offering an estimated $258 million. You can watch that drawing live on Fox 4 in Southwest Florida.
