MIAMI – A 65-year-old Miami man is South Florida’s latest lucky lottery winner.

Luis Corbacho Perez scored a $1 million prize from the Billion Dollar Gold Rush Supreme scratch-off game, Florida Lottery announced Thursday.

Corbacho Perez took his winnings in a one-time lump sum of $880,000.

State lottery officials say he bought the $30 scratcher from Lamri Citgo at 3698 Southwest 8th Street, which gets a $2,000 bonus commission.

That particular ticket has been in play since February, with a top prize worth $15 million.
