PLANTATION, Fla. – Maybe luck is in the air this holiday season.
A Lauderhill man would agree after revealing a $1 million prize on a $20 scratch-off ticket bought at a local Publix.
Denva Hudson, 60, played the Gold Rush Limited game at the Publix located at 1181 South University Drive in Plantation, Florida Lottery said.
Hudson took his winnings in a one-time lump sum of $795,000.
The store that sold the ticket gets a $2,000 bonus commission.
Hudson’s score comes as state lottery officials also announced that a $5 million ticket was sold at a Publix in Weston. That scratcher was from the same $20 Gold Rush Limited game.
Gold Rush Limited launched in September, offering the chance at 32 top prizes worth $5 million and 100 prizes of $1 million, Florida Lottery says.
