On Valentine’s Day, Publix was the go-to destination for purchasing Florida Lottery tickets, as highlighted by the sale of four out of seven winning Fantasy 5 tickets at a Publix supermarket. Adding to the excitement, lottery officials announced on the romantic occasion that a Tampa resident had struck gold with a $1 million win from a scratch-off ticket.

Abdallah Adlouni of Tampa clinched the coveted $1 million prize while playing the 500X The Cash scratch-off game. Opting for a lump-sum payment, Adlouni secured $820,000 in winnings from his fortuitous ticket.

Adlouni’s winning ticket was purchased at Publix, specifically at 3700 Fourth St. North in St. Petersburg. As a token of appreciation, the retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for vending the winning scratch-off ticket.

The odds of winning various prizes in the 500X The Cash game are as follows:

  • $25 million: 1-in-21,920,355
  • $1 million: 1-in-274,004
