A South Florida man hit payday in a big way when he won $15 million on a $30 scratch-off buy.
Florida Lottery officials said 50-year-old Angel Manzanarez, of North Lauderdale, bought the Gold Rush Special Edition card from the 7-Eleven at 8100 West McNab Road.
Manzanarez took the one-time, lump-sum payment of $10,440,000.00 after claiming his prize in Tallahassee, officials said Friday. The 7-Eleven will receive $30,000 for selling the winning ticket.
The Gold Rush Special Edition launched in February and features six top prizes of $15 million. There are also 24 prizes of $1 million.
