New York Man Takes Home $500,000 In Florida Lottery Winnings

The Florida Lottery announced that Michael Gibbons, 62, of Freehold, New York, claimed a $500,000 top prize from the BREAK THE BANK BINGO Scratch-Off game using a secured drop box located at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. He purchased his winning ticket from 7-Eleven, located at 720 South Congress Avenue in West Palm Beach.

The $5 game, BREAK THE BANK BINGO, launched in April and offers six top prizes of $500,000! The game’s overall odds of winning are one-in-3.98.

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.
