TALLAHASSEE — A 65-year-old Hobe Sound man has more than one reason to give thanks this Thanksgiving.
Try five million.
Alan Adelson won $5 million from the Florida Lottery Millionaire Scratch-off game, according to a news release issued Tuesday.
"I scratched off the ticket and said, 'Holy Cow!' I couldn't believe it," Adelson is quoted as saying in the release. "It was such an amazing feeling!"
He chose to take the winnings in a lump-sum payment of $4.1 million, the release states. He purchased the winning ticket at Publix store, 5893 S.E. Federal Highway, Stuart.
The lottery win was not Adelson's first. Earlier this year he won three $1,000 scratch-off prizes from tickets he purchased at a Publix store
