The second $1 million Florida Lottery winner purchased his $5 million Gold Rush Doubler scratch-off ticket at Indiantown Road. Robert Barty, Jr. became the second $1 million Florida Lottery winner from Palm Beach County within 24 hours. He chose to receive $745,000 as one-time lump-sum payment and came to Tallahassee to collect his prize.
The ticket bought at Indiantown Marathon, 243 W. Indiantown Road in Jupiter is likely to give $2,000 bonus commission to the concerned shop. Barty followed the footprint of Mark Schay. Mark, the 49-year-old, scooped $1 million in the lottery’s $10 million Fortune scratch-off game. The $20 game features six $5 million prizes and thirty $1 million prizes.
Jupiter has been lucky in the recent days. A $4 million winner purchased the winning ticket at the same Publix in 2011. In February, Jupiter, a Publix Store at Alternate State Road, sold a winning Fantasy 5 ticket worth $205,879.99. It correctly matched the winning numbers; i.e., 01, 02, 09, 23, and 25; of that draw.
