SEBASTIAN, Fla. - A Florida man is starting off 2021 $1,000,000 richer after buying a winning scratch-off ticket from the grocery store.
Gerald Dixon, of Sebastian, claimed a $1 million prize from the 200X THE CASH Scratch-Off game.
Dixon chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $890,000.
He purchased his winning ticket from Winn-Dixie at 995 Sebastian Boulevard. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.
Meanwhile, over $1 billion is up for grabs between the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots.
The Powerball drawing for Saturday night is worth $470 million. If you take the lump sum payment, you would get $362 million.
No one won Friday's Mega Millions jackpot, so now it rolls over to $600 million. The next drawing is on Tuesday.
