South Carolina Man Visited Family in Florida, Won $1 Million Scratch-Off

A South Carolina man visited family in Florida and went home to Rockhill feeling like a million dollars – it could be family time, or it could be the stop at Murphy Express when he bought a 500X THE CASH ticket and won $1 million.

The Florida Lottery announced that LeQuintis Long, of Rock Hill, South Carolina claimed a $1 million prize from the 500X THE CASH scratch-off game at Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee.

Long chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $820,000.00.

Long purchased his winning ticket from Murphy Express, located at 9950 Hutchinson Boulevard in Panama City Beach. The retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning scratch-off ticket.

The $50 game, 500X THE CASH, features a top prize of $25 million—the largest ever offered on a Florida scratch-off game—and the best odds to become an instant millionaire. The game’s overall odds of winning are 1-in-4.50.

Recently, there have been many millionaire winners around Florida, including a Palm Beach County resident, and a St. Lucie County resident. A Hendry County resident recently won $1,000 a week for life. A Polk County resident from Lakeland won $2 million from a scratch-off, a Miami-Dade County resident won $1 million, and a Tampa man won $1 million, among many others including an Auburn, Alabama man. A Cape Coral resident also found a “lotto” luck with a $41 million jackpot win.
