Florida lottery must be a very lucky state when someone visiting from Maine can come here and get a 3.5 million dollar win on a quickpick:
The Florida Lottery announces that Stephen Emery, 63, of Bangor, Maine, claimed $3.5 million, which is his share of the $7 million FLORIDA LOTTO™ jackpot from the drawing held on February 22. Gates Castle, 60, of Sanibel, claimed the other $3.5 million share of the jackpot earlier this month.
Emery chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $2,377,540.67. Publix, located at 1170 Weston Road in Fort Lauderdale, received a bonus commission of $15,000 for selling the winning FLORIDA LOTTO Quick Pick ticket.
