Broward man claims $1 million Mega Millions prize

DANIA BEACH, Fla. – A Broward County man won $1 million playing the Mega Millions game, and claimed his prize last week, Florida Lottery officials confirmed.

According to Lottery officials, Shmuel Febles, 56, of Hollywood, purchased his winning ticket from the Exxon gas station, located at 3991 Stirling Road in Dania Beach.

The business will receive a $1,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.

According to Lottery officials, Febles’ ticket from the July 26 drawing matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn but did not match the Mega Ball number.

“Since joining MEGA MILLIONS in 2013, the game has generated more than $938 million for education and has awarded more than $835 million in prizes to 68 million players,” the Florida Lottery said in a statement.
