A U.S. Marine veteran is happy after winning big from the Florida Lottery from a scratch-off ticket. Now he has his eyes set on one thing.
James Musselwhite of Sarasota won a $1 million prize from the ‘$5,000,000 Luck scratch-off game. He claimed his prize at the Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee as a lump-sum of $760.000.
Musselwhite purchased his ticket at the Circle A Food Place located at 3637 Bahia Vista Street in Sarasota. The store will get a $2,000 bonus for selling the ticket.
Musselwhite was asked about what he plans to do with the money. He responded that he’s already traveled the world while serving as a United States Marine. He told the Florida Lottery, “I guess the only thing I really want now is a new golf cart.” The military veteran was joined at the Florida Lottery Headquarters to celebrate the win.
‘$5,000,000 Luck’ is a $20 scratch-off game that launched in September, 2019. It offers prizes ranging from $20 to $5,000,000. There’s still 1 of 40 $1 million prizes available, as well as 1 of 12 $5 million prizes available.
