The $1,000,000 Money Tree Scratch-off lottery game is the latest addition to the scratch-off games offered by Florida Lottery.
The Florida Lottery informed that the player provided the jackpot prize-winning ticket through the dropbox. The dropbox is located at Florida Lottery’s office that is based in the Orlando District.
The Florida Lottery also confirmed that the player decided to go with the lump sum amount. The player went with the one-time lump sum amount of $880,000 instead of going with the annuity installment plan.
The Florida Lottery also provided the details of the store where the lucky ticket was purchased from by the player. The store that sold the jackpot prize-winning ticket is known as the 7-Eleven Store. The 7-Eleven Store is located at 4900 West State Road #46 (Sanford).
The Florida Lottery has provided the details of the store to encourage more people to buy lottery tickets from the same location. The store also made itself a fortune for selling the jackpot prize-winning ticket. The Florida Lottery confirmed that the store will be receiving a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the jackpot prize-winning ticket.
The Florida Lottery gives out bonus commissions to stores for selling prize winnings tickets as an encouragement. It encourages the stores to promote the lotteries among the regular customers so they can also try their luck.

The player stated that he currently has no special plans for spending his prize money. However, the winner did state that he will be saving most of his winnings for the future. The majority of the prize money will serve as his retirement investment.
