This Scratch-Off Lottery Ticket Made 3 Floridians $1 Million Richer

Three Palm Beach County residents have become overnight millionaires after striking it big in the Florida Lottery’s latest sensation, the 500x THE CASH scratch-off game. Alicia Sanders, Cathleen Schoepfle and Robert Stiller are the newest winners on the $50 ticket. According to a press release, all three chose the one-time lump payment of $820,000.00.

Not only did these three players strike gold, but the retailers who sold them the winning tickets are also celebrating their share of the glory. Franks Deli in West Palm Beach, the 7-Eleven in Riviera Beach and the Publix in Palm Beach will each receive a hefty $2,000 bonus commission. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved!

When buying a scratch-off ticket, you obviously hope you’ll have good luck. It’s impossible to know which ticket it will be, but knowing the odds of winning does help. The other day, though, there was a list of the scratch-off tickets to avoid. But obviously it’s not a guaranteed loss, because this particular ticket was on that list! But it’s the same with those with the best odds too, you’re not guaranteed a win. You never know when you’ll strike gold. It can happen to you on any ticket at any time.

So, if you find yourself feeling extra lucky today, why not grab a scratch-off ticket and let the thrill of possibility wash over you? After all, with each scratch, you could be one step closer to joining the ranks of the fortunate few who strike it rich in an instant. Just remember, dreams do come true, and sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of luck and a winning ticket!


Here Are The Best Lottery Tickets To Buy This Month

I love me a good scratch-off lottery ticket and if you’re wondering what the best lottery tickets in Florida to buy this month are, we have the answer.

My favorite scratchers are the crossword puzzles. Because they take more time to complete, I feel like I’m getting my money’s worth. Same with the Bingo cards! I get sucked in as I’m walking out of Publix right around the corner from my house in Fort Myers. I’ve gotten better with not giving in EVERY time, but the allure of paying a few bucks to possibly win big is definitely there for me.

Whether you have a card preference like me, or just want to pick a ticket that you think will pay off, the goal IS to win right? So wouldn’t it be nice to know what your odds are to better your chances of winning? Good news, LottoEdge put together a list of the 10 best to buy this month. Now of course, this doesn’t guarantee you a win, but it may help improve your odds. And you’ll have to spend a bit more than just a few bucks. But it might be worth it!
