The Florida Lottery announces that Jeffory Dodd, 50, of Milton, claimed a $1 million top prize from THE FASTEST ROAD TO $1,000,000 Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee.
He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $790,000.00.
“It hasn’t fully sunk in yet,” Dodd told the Florida Lottery. “I plan to buy a house and a new truck with the money, but I really haven’t made many plans beyond that.”
Dodd purchased his winning ticket from Circle K, located at 5190 Ward Basin Road in Milton. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.
The $30 game, THE FASTEST ROAD TO $1,000,000, launched in February 2020 and features 155 top prizes of $1,000,000 and over $948 million in cash prizes! The game’s overall odds of winning are one-in-2.79.
Scratch-Off games are an important part of the Lottery’s portfolio of games, comprising approximately 75 percent of ticket sales and generating more than $1.3 billion for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) in fiscal year 2020-21.
