Boynton Beach Resident Strikes Gold with $1 Million Lottery Win
47-year-old Mario Torres, from Boynton Beach, has struck gold, and by gold, I mean a cool $1 million from the Florida Lottery’s $20 GOLD RUSH LIMITED Scratch-Off game. Sure it would be nice if It were YOU but for now we have to live through our friend Mario.
According to WFLA, Mario Torres, who clearly knows how to pick the winning ticket, made the trip to Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee to claim his freshly scratched fortune. Mario also likes things all at once. He chose the lump-sum payment of $795,000.00. It’s kinda like winning the lottery, and then winning it again. You know, when you get to pocket a whole bunch of cash at once. Cha-ching! That’s got to feel pretty darn good.
If you were wondering where Mario purchased his winning ticket, then you’re about as curious as I am. Just head over to Kenny’s Mart in Boynton Beach. Maybe lightning strikes twice? Either way, Kenny’s Mart will be rolling in the bonus commission. They get a sweet $2,000 for being the lucky supplier of Torres’ winning Scratch-Off. Wow. That might make you wanna pick up an extra shift at a convenience store.
The GOLD RUSH LIMITED game, launched in September 2021, It has 32 top prizes of $5 million and 100 prizes of $1 million. With over 33,000 prizes ranging from $1,000 to $100,000, it’s safe to say this game is making a lot of Floridians very happy.
The next time you’re eyeing those scratch cards at the gas station, remember Mario Torres in Boynton Beach.
