A Cape Coral man won a $2 million jackpot playing the Florida Lottery’s “Jackpot Triple Play.”
Lottery officials said Michael Diamond used a secured dropbox at lottery headquarters in Tallahassee to claim his winnings from the March 24 drawing.
Diamond chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $1,741,274.46. He purchased his winning ticket from Murphy USA, located at 1617 Del Prado Blvd. S., in Cape Coral. The retailer will receive a bonus commission of $2,000 for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.
The next “Jackpot Triple Play” drawing will be held Tuesday at 11:15 p.m. ET, with a $525,000 jackpot.
For $1, JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY players get a triple chance to win the jackpot, as each ticket comes with three sets of numbers to match with the winning numbers drawn. Players can choose six numbers from 1 to 46 for the first set and the second set will be randomly Quick Picked. Jackpots start at $500,000 and can roll over to reach $2 million before rolling down to increase the lower-prize levels in each drawing until the jackpot is won. Players win by matching the three or more numbers from the same set to the winning numbers drawn. Players can get an extra chance to win by combining all matches on the ticket by adding Combo for $1 more.
