The name of the game is ‘The Fastest Road to $1,000,000’ scratch-off. The winner decided to go with the one-time lump sum prize of $790,000 and claimed her prize from Florida Lottery’s headquarters. The headquarters for the Florida Lottery is located in Tallahassee.
Now comes the best part of the lottery prize win that is the story told by the winner. The 61-year-old Pamela Lavigne told her prize-winning story with great enthusiasm. She stated that she was heading home and on the way, she decided to pick up food for her family from one of the grocery stores.
While at the store, she saw the display for the scratch-off lottery game and decided to test her luck. She took the ticket and decided to scratch it off in her car. She said that her heart-beat got faster with every step she took towards her car.
When she rested in her car seat, she started to scratch off the ticket and couldn’t believe her eyes at the start. As she scratched through the entire ticket, she was shocked to see that she had matched all five sets of numbers for the jackpot prize.
The Florida Lottery later confirmed that Pamela Lavigne had purchased the ticket from the Winn-Dixie grocery store. The store is located at 1812 South Highway 77 (Lynn Haven).
The Florida Lottery has confirmed that the Winn-Dixie grocery store will also be receiving a bonus commission of $2,000 for selling the jackpot prize-winning ticket.
