Two Orlando men each won $1 million through scratch-offs sold on Colonial Drive.

According to a press release from the Florida Lottery, the two men claimed prizes from the 500X The Cash Scatch-off game this week at the lottery’s Orlando District Office.

The first man, 58-year-old Douglas Johnson, purchased his winning ticket from the Circle K located at 12914 E Colonial Drive. He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $820,000.

The second man, 59-year-old Richard Locklin of Deltona, purchased his winning ticket from the Wawa located at 4100 East Colonial Drive. Locklin also chose to receive his winnings as a one-time payment for the same amount.

The retailers will each receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off tickets. The new $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, according to the Florida Lottery.

The game’s overall odds of winning are 1-in-4.50.
