Now here we are again, with a local catching the good luck! Arthur McCoy, 66, claimed the $1 million prize from “THE FASTEST ROAD TO $1,000,000 Scratch-Off” game. Here’s a picture of his $30 winning ticket:

McCoy decided to take his winnings in one lump sum of a total of $790,000.

The ticket was purchased in Middleburg at the Murphy USA on 1570 Branan Field Road.

The gas station will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.

In August, the Florida Lottery had announced at least three winners in the Jacksonville area from the FANTASY 5 game alone. The FANTASY 5 game cost $1 per play.

McCoy won from a $30 scratch-off ticket, different from the FANTASY 5 game. The game McCoy played, “THE FASTEST ROAD TO $1,000,000″, overall odds of winning are one-in-2.79.

The Florida Lottery said that scratch-offs are an important part of the lottery, with approximately 75% of ticket sales being scratch-offs.

Those ticket sales have generated more than $1.3 billion for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund in 2020-2021.
