Six lottery players become instant millionaires, and all hail from South Florida. The winners are from three different lottery games which are the Lotto, the Scratch Off and the Mega Money having $12M being the highest take. The variations in the games played is said to be the reason for the result of the wins as the games played were evenly split among Lotto, Powerball and Scratch Off.
Because of the wins, there has been an increase in South Florida’s revenues for both business and education. The state gets 50% from Powerball ticket sales and 30% from Scratch Off sales.
