JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Another day, another lottery winner from Jacksonville.

On Tuesday the Florida Lottery announced Sauna Hicks hit the jackpot after winning the top prize on a Gold Rush Supreme Scratch-Off.

Hicks is one of 41 winners from the fourth of eight drawings in the Gold Rush Supreme Bonus Play Promotion.

Hicks won the top prize of $939,341.69. Five second prize winners each received $5,000, 15 third prize winners each received $1,000, and 20 others received $500, according to the Lottery.

The next drawing is scheduled for August 16.

Hicks is just the latest in a string of local winners.

In March, Krisunta Tu, 39, turned $20 into a $5 million top prize when she bought a 200X THE CASH scratch-off at the G&K Food Store on Normandy Blvd.

In April, a 59-year-old Jacksonville woman won $1 million when she purchased her ticket at Prime Time Food Store on Dunn Avenue.

The following month Curtis Fuller spent $5 for the 50X THE CASH scratch-off game and won the $1 million top prize.

Action News Jax told you in June a Ponte Vedra Beach man came forward as the trustee of a winning $286 million POWERBALL. The Love You More Trust, which is now Florida’s 16th Powerball winner, chose to receive the winnings in a one-time, lump-sum payment of $196,706,252.17.

And there have been plenty more winners.

Will you be next?
