Did you win the lottery? Here’s what to do next
A North Lauderdale man fulfilled the Floridian dream when he won $15 million from a $30 scratch-off game.
Angel Manzanarez, 50, purchased his winning Gold Rush Special edition scratch-off ticket from a 7-Eleven at 8100 West McNab Rd., lottery officials said. The store gets a $30,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.
Manzanarez claimed the $15 million top prize from the Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee in June, officials said. He chose a lump sum payment for $10,440,000.
The scratch-off game was started in February and features six top prizes of $15 million, officials said. The game also offers 24 prizes of $1 million and the overall odds of winning are 1-in-2.60.
