A Florida man who won a $1 million prize in December won another $1 million prize this month, Florida Lottery officials announced this week.

Scottie Grant, 58, of Molino, Florida, continued his lucky streak claiming a second $1 million prize from the 500X THE CASH Scratch-Off game at Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee.

He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $820,000.00.

“I’m back!” Grant said, smiling broadly. Grant’s trip to Lottery Headquarters is his second since December 2022, when he won $1 million playing the same Scratch-Off game.

Grant purchased his winning ticket at Circle Food Mart, located at 2000 North T Street in Pensacola. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket.

The $50 500X THE CASH Scratch-Off game features a top prize of $25 million–the largest ever offered on a Florida Scratch-Off game–and the best odds to become an instant millionaire! The game’s overall odds of winning are 1-in-4.50.
