Florida Woman Chooses Lump Sum $810,000 From Lottery Scratch-Off

The Florida Lottery announced that Diana Gilchrist, 62, of Sanford, claimed a top prize in the $1,000 A WEEK FOR LIFE Scratch-Off game using a secured drop box located at the Orlando District Office. She chose to receive her winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $810,000.00.

Gilchrist purchased her winning ticket from Food Express, located at 1690 West Airport Boulevard in Sanford. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

The $2 game, $1,000 A WEEK FOR LIFE, launched in July 2019 and has more than 9.8 million winning tickets, including eight top prizes of $1,000 a week for life! The game’s overall odds of winning are one-in-4.43.

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.

Florida Lottery offices are currently open to the public by appointment only for players with prizes valued at $5,000 or more. Players can request a claim appointment at Headquarters and district offices through the Lottery’s website, at www.flalottery.com/howToClaim. Players with prizes valued $600 – $4,999 can still utilize the secured drop box located at each district office or mail tickets to Florida Lottery Headquarters or a district office.
