TALLAHASSEE — Florida lottery winner, Genner Hernandez, 44, of Fort Lauderdale, has plenty of reason to celebrate this holiday season. He recently claimed a $2 million top prize from the 100X Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee, choosing to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $1,605,000.00.

Hernandez purchased his winning ticket from Star K, located at 2509 Southwest 9th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. The retailer will receive a $4,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

The $10 game launched in January 2020 and features eight top prizes of $2 million! The game’s overall odds of winning are one-in-3.46.

Scratch-Off games are an important part of the Lottery's portfolio of games, comprising approximately 75 percent of ticket sales and generating more than $1 billion for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) in fiscal year 2019-20.

Florida Lottery offices are currently open to the public by appointment only for players with prizes valued at $600 or more. Players can request a claim appointment at Headquarters and district offices through the Lottery’s website, at www.flalottery.com/howToClaim. Players can still utilize the secured drop box located at each district office or mail tickets to Florida Lottery Headquarters or a district office.
