Florida man wins $1 million prize

Florida – While back-to-school shopping for his daughter, a man ended up winning a $1 million prize.
Florida Lottery officials say 47-year-old Cleveland Pope was on a different side of town in Brooksville when he decided to purchase a $30 Billion Dollar Gold Rush Supreme scratch-off.
“I just happened to be on a different side of town from where I normally buy lottery tickets, all because I was looking for a specific backpack for my daughter to start school with,” Pope told the Florida Lottery.
Pope decided to receive a lump-sum payment of $880,000, after taxes.
The store where he purchased the scratch-off from will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.
