I usually check the media section of the Florida Lottery site to see where the winning Fantasy 5 tickets were purchased. From what I've read, the majority of winning tickets are bought in Miami-Dade County.
Today I checked the news and Fantasy 5 was won by 3 people winning approx $82K each. One of the winning tickets was from the Telogia Grocery. I thought I knew most of the small towns in FL, but I never heard of Telogia. So I used Google and still couldn't find much information. I tried Telogia Real Estate and got nothing - oh there was one mobile home on 40 acres for $265,000. So I finally checked the zip code on mapquest and it's a town 475 miles from here, population 21. So I guess not only people in big cities win!
(By the way, 1 of the 3 winners was from Miami!)
