The Florida Lottery announced that Munib Garvanovic, 56, of Jacksonville, claimed a $5 million top prize from the 200X THE CASH Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee, three years after claiming a $1 million prize from the $5,000,000 GOLD RUSH DOUBLER Scratch-Off game! He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $4,450,000.00.
Garvanovic says he purchases his tickets from the same convenience store every time. “I love playing the Lottery at my local Gate store! Every November I play my favorite Scratch-Off games because I feel it brings me extra luck,” he said. “This is the second time in three years that this store has made me a winner!”
Garvanovic purchased his winning ticket from Gate, located at 1001 Monument Road in Jacksonville. The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.
The $20 game, 200X THE CASH, launched in September and features more than $446 million in cash prizes, including ten top prizes of $5 million! The game’s overall odds of winning are 1-in-2.96.
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 billion for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) in fiscal year 2019-20.
