Florida Lottery has announced three more $1 million winners on scratch-off tickets — including one man here from Texas.

Tanawat Yakong, 45, of Houston, revealed the top prize from the Fastest Road to $1,000,000 game on a $30 ticket he bought in North Fort Myers.

Meanwhile, Janinka Glenn Grace, 36, of Riverview, claimed a $1 million prize from the 200X The Cash game on a $20 ticket bought in her hometown.

And Michael Turner, 59, of Yulee, scored a $1 million prize from the $5,000,000 Luck scratch-off that sells for $20. He bought his ticket in Yulee.

Each of those three winners took their payouts as a one-time lump sum, and each of the retailers that sold the tickets earns $2,000 as a bonus commission, state lottery officials say.
