Holiday Scratch off tickets from the Florida Lottery

Retired Florida Man Gets An Early Christmas Gift, $1,000,000

The Florida Lottery announced that Philip Grzybowski, of Dunnellon, claimed the first $1 million top prize from the new $1,000,000 HOLIDAY WINNINGS Scratch-Off game at Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee.

He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $795,000.00.

“It hasn’t quite sunk in yet,” Grzybowski told the Lottery. “My wife and I retired last year, so now we have a little cushion to enjoy whatever comes next.”

Grzybowski purchased his winning ticket from Publix, located at 11352 North Williams Street in Dunnellon. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

The new $1,000,000 HOLIDAY WINNINGS game launched on November 1 and features more than $73 million in cash prizes, including six top prizes of $1 million for just $5! The game’s overall odds of winning are one-in-3.81.

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.
