The Florida Lottery announces that Litzy Ruiz, 45, of Pasadena, California, claimed the $750,000 LUCKY MONEY™ jackpot from the October 27, 2017, drawing at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee.
“I usually don’t play the Lottery at home in California, but I decided to purchase a LUCKY MONEY ticket while visiting family in Miami,” Ruiz explained. “Winning this incredible jackpot is definitely a good excuse to extend my time in Florida!”
Ruiz chose to receive her winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $552,594.30. She purchased her winning LUCKY MONEY ticket from Publix, located at 8680 Southwest 24th Street in Miami. The retailer received a bonus commission of $1,000 for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.
The next LUCKY MONEY drawing will be held Friday, November 3, 2017, at 11:15 p.m. ET, with a $550,000 jackpot. The LUCKY MONEY drawings are broadcast on 17 carrier stations throughout the state. Winning numbers are available on the Lottery website, at retailers statewide and by phone at (850) 921-PLAY.
