MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Two Floridians recently revealed million-dollar wins on the Billion Dollar Gold Rush Supreme scratch-off — including one in Miami.

Luis Calvo, 51, purchased his ticket from Sunflex at 6120 Northwest 27th Avenue in Miami-Dade County.

He decided to take a lump-sum payout of $880,000, lottery officials said.

Lee Fisher, 57, of St. Petersburg, made the same decision. He bought his lucky ticket at a Publix in his home city.

Each of the retailers who sold the winning tickets receives a $2,000 bonus commission.

The top prize on that Gold Rush Supreme scratch-off is $15 million, but there are 24 prizes worth $1 million, Florida Lottery says.
