Orange county man wins $1 million from Florida Lottery drawing

An Orange County man claimed a $1,000,000 cash prize after buying a winning Florida Lottery ticket from a local gas station.

According to the Florida Lottery, 51-year-old David Messer of Golden Oak purchased the winning draw for the MEGA MILLIONS game on April 12 at Rebel, located at 7900 World Center Drive in Orlando.

Messer’s winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers, but did not match the Mega Ball number.

Currently, the MEGA MILLIONS total jackpot is just under $100 million.

The retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.

The MEGA MILLIONS game has awarded more than $782.9 million in prizes to 61.9 million players since it was incorporated in the state of Florida in 2013.
