Dennis Detwiller, 61, of Delray Beach, claimed a $1 million prize at Florida Lottery headquarters Tuesday.
Detwiller played the Billion Dollar Blockbuster Scratch-Off game, which costs $20 per ticket. He's the 23rd winner to claim a $1 million prize this year.
Detwiller purchased his winning ticket from Rashed Convenience Store, located at 3327 S. Dixie Highway in Delray Beach. Detwiller told lottery officials that he's played Lotto for years but it was the first time he tried the $20 scratch-off game.
"I still can’t believe I won!” he said. Detwiller chose the one-time, lump-sum payment option of $650,000.
The $20 Scratch-Off game launched on Feb. 24, 2009, and features more than $1 billion in prizes, including 10 instant-win prizes of $10 million. To date, the game has awarded more than $192 million in prizes.
The overall odds of winning are 1-in-2.98. Tickets may be purchased at any of the more than 13,000 Florida Lottery retail locations statewide.
