A Port St. Lucie resident just cashed in on a big prize playing the Florida Lottery.
Officials said in a news release Tuesday that John Dolas, 48, of Port St. Lucie, claimed a top prize playing the $2 million Gold Rush Doubler scratch-off game.
Dolas chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $1.6 million.
He bought his winning ticket from the Circle K Gas Station located at 2902 Southwest Port St. Lucie Blvd. in Port St. Lucie.
The retailer will receive a $4,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.
