Polk County man turns $5 gas station trip into $1 million lottery win

A man from Polk County is now $1 million richer after claiming a winning lottery ticket. 

Adam Wilson of Winter Haven scratched his way to a win in the "The Price Is Right" scratch-off game, the Florida Lottery announced Friday. The 39-year-old man purchased the winning ticket from 7-Eleven at 4000 Recker Highway in Winter Haven. 

Wilson chose to get his winnings in a one-time, lump-sum payment of $640,000. 

The gas station will get a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket. 

This marks the first $1 million Florida Lottery prize to be claimed in September.
