WELLINGTON, Fla. – A Palm Beach County man scored big on Florida Lotto — to the tune of $1.75 million.
Gilberto Rodriguez, of Wellington, claimed the jackpot from the July 24 drawing, Florida Lottery announced.
Lottery officials say Rodriguez decided to take his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $1,367,994.41.
