Winners who collect prizes of $600 or more must fill out a claim form indicating where the ticket was purchased.
Between all 10 stores, the total winnings add up to $9.2 million.
According to Florida Lottery data, the number one place in Central Florida that sells the most amount of winning tickets is Rightway Foods Store at 6700 N. Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando.
This location sold 245 winning tickets during the period of time recorded by the Florida Lottery.
Records show the number two spot goes to Publix #1201 at 8075 SW Highway 200 in Ocala, which sold 128 winning tickets.
Data shows a 117-ticket gap between first and second place.
According to lottery data, quantity of tickets sold does not necessarily equate to the amount of money won.
For instance, those who purchased tickets from the number one store on the list won a collective $5.5 million, the number two store produced just over $460,000 and the number nine store resulted in a cumulative $1.04 million.
Although the number nine store only sold 118 winning tickets over $600, the amount of money won was more than 80% of the stores on the top 10 list, data shows.
If you are trying to test your luck after missing out on this week’s Powerball jackpot, data shows the Rightway Foods Store on Orange Blossom Trail is the best place to do so when it comes to large payouts.
