SPRING HILL, Fla. – Florida Lottery’s new Gold Rush Limited scratch-off went into play last month, and the first $5 million top prize was just claimed.
Valerie Homer-Faggart, 68, of Spring Hill in Hernando County, won and opted for a lump-sum payment of $3,960,000, state lottery officials announced.
The $20 Gold Rush Limited ticket debuted Sept. 20 and offers the chance for 32 of those top prizes.
Last week, the first $1 million winner from that game was revealed.
Florida Lottery said Homer-Faggart bought her lucky scratcher from A to Z Discount Beverage (4060 Deltona Boulevard in Spring Hill), which gets a $10,000 bonus commission.
