Pensacola, Fl

A $ 10 scratch-off ticket purchased from Publix made a Miami woman wealthier.

Florida Lottery officials announced that Patricia Burns, 41, won first prize in the $ 2 million Cashword Scratch game.

She decided to take a total payment of $ 1.475 million.

Burns purchased the scarifier at Publix at 1776 Biscayne Boulevard in Miami. The store gets a $ 4,000 commission for selling the ticket.

Cashword, launched in 2019, gives players a chance to win one of the top 10 prizes of $ 2 million.

Last month, another Miami woman won $ 1 million for a $ 5 scratch purchased from Walmart.

Florida Lottery says scratcher games make up about 75% of their ticket sales and contributed more than $ 1 billion to the Education Improvement Trust in the last fiscal year.
