PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – Florida’s richest scratch-off has made a Port Charlotte man very wealthy.
Adam Charlton, 48, was announced Thursday as a winner of a $15 million top prize from the Billion Dollar Gold Rush Supreme game.
Florida Lottery officials say he opted for a lump-sum payment of $13.2 million.
Charlton’s lucky $30 ticket was bought at a Publix at 3941 Tamiami Trail in Punta Gorda. The store gets a $30,000 bonus commission.
Florida Lottery says this specific scratcher, which debuted in February, offers the chance at four of those $15 million top prizes and another 24 prizes worth $1 million.
