It’s a big payday for a Sanford man after purchasing a quick-pick lottery ticket from a Publix in Lake Mary.
The Florida Lottery announced EB Hudson won the $7.75 million Florida Lotto jackpot from the Sept. 8 drawing.
Hudson chose to take the one-time, lump-sum payment of $6,035,178.17, officials said.
The winning ticket was purchased from a Lake Mary Publix at 601 Weldon Boulevard. Publix will receive a bonus commission of $70,000 for selling the winning ticket, according to lottery officials.
