Tallahassee Resident Wins $1.45 Million in Florida Lottery Jackpot

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A man from Florida turned a mere $1 lottery ticket into a whopping $1.45 million when he hit the jackpot in a Florida Lottery drawing earlier this year.

Larry Strickland, residing in Tallahassee, claimed his incredible prize on Thursday, arising from a drawing that took place on February 15th for the Jackpot Triple Play game. Opting for the one-time lump-sum payment, he received a staggering $937,534.

Strickland’s lucky ticket was purchased at a Publix supermarket located at 6753 Thomasville Road in Tallahassee, and as a result, the store will receive a bonus commission of $1,000 for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.

In the Jackpot Triple Play game, players pay $1 for three attempts at the jackpot. To win, players must match three or more numbers in the winning set.

If they wish, they can add a “combo” to the ticket for an extra dollar, which combines all of the matches, providing them with an additional chance to win.

According to the Florida Lottery, the jackpots commence at $250,000 and can roll over until they reach $2 million before starting to increase the lower-prize levels in each subsequent drawing until someone claims the jackpot.

At present, the jackpot stands at $1.2 million, and the next drawing is scheduled for Friday.
