Wednesday The Florida Lottery announced that Wayne London, of Weeki Wachee, claimed a $1 million prize in the 25th Anniversary Edition Millionaire Scratch-Off game at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee.

London chose to receive the winnings in a one-time, lump-sum payment totaling over $800,000. Lottery officials say London purchased his winning Scratch-Off ticket at Publix, located at 4365 Commercial Way in Spring Hill.

Lottery officials say the special 25th Anniversary Scratch-Off ticket, similar to the Lottery's very first scratch-off game, MILLIONAIRE, launched in celebration of 25 years of the Florida Lottery giving back to players.

The game features over $290 million in total cash prizes, including 25 prizes ranging from $1 million to $5 million, and the highest prize payout percentage ever in Florida Lottery history. This ticket features one-in-2.87 overall odds of winning, the best overall odds of any Scratch-Off game currently available from the Florida Lottery.
