A 67-year-old Jupiter man just won a big jackpot playing the Florida Lottery.
Officials said in a Wednesday news release that Robert Barty, Jr. claimed a $1 million prize in the $5,000,000 GOLD RUSH DOUBLER scratch-off game at lottery headquarters in Tallahassee.
Barty chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $745,000.
He purchased his winning ticket from Indiantown Marathon, located at 243 West Indiantown Rd. in Jupiter.
Lottery officials said the retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.
