CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) — A Clearwater man took home a $1 million lottery prize from a gas station scratch-off ticket.
On Tuesday, the Florida Lottery announced Krenar Gavani, 57, claimed the prize at the lottery’s Tampa office.
Gavani purchased the ticket from a Race Trac gas station, located at 2854 Gulf to Bay Blvd. in Clearwater. The store will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.
He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $640,000.
