Raymond Cineus is having a very happy holiday after winning the $5 million top prize on a scratch-off he bought from a local Publix.
Raymond decided on the one-time, lump-sum payment of $3,915,000.
Cineus won on the $5,000,000 Cashword scratcher that he bought for $20 in Sunrise and that market gets a $10,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.
Lottery officials say this specific scratch-off game launched in May and has eight of those $5 million top prizes, plus 24 second prizes worth $1 million. Scratch-offs comprise 75% of their ticket sales and generat over $1 billion for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund in the 2019-20 fiscal year.
