PENSACOLA, Fla. – It was a double-dose of luck for two scratch-off players in Pensacola.
Frances Peterson and Walter Scales were both announced as $1 million winners from that city — both from playing Florida Lottery’s Gold Rush Limited game.
Peterson bought her winning ticket from a Circle K at 800 West Garden Street in Pensacola, state lottery officials said. Scales’ ticket came from Sai Krupa, located at 7815 North Davis Highway in Pensacola.
Both took their winnings in the form of one-time, lump-sum payments of $795,000. Each retailer receives a $2,000 bonus commission.
That particular scratch-off game costs $20 to play and offers the chance at top prizes worth $5 million or $1 million.
