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.
