ORLANDO, Fla. – An Orlando woman won $1 million from a scratch-off lottery game — twice!

Altovise Morris, 41, claimed two $1 million prizes from the 500X THE CASH scratch-off game she played a couple months apart, Florida Lottery officials said on Monday.

Morris claimed the first prize in November 2022 and promised Florida Lottery officials she would “be back.”

She returned in January to claim another $1 million prize after she closed on her dream home.

“After closing on my house, I stopped at a Sunoco Foodmart in Clermont, and it happened again. I still can’t believe this is happening,” she said, according to the Florida Lottery.

She chose to receive her winnings in one-time, lump-sum payments of $820,000.

500X THE CASH is a $50 game that includes a top prize of $25 million, one of the highest in a Florida Lottery scratch-off game. According to the Florida Lottery, the game’s overall odds of winning are 1 in 4.50.

According to the Florida Lottery website, there are 14 $1 million prizes and one $25 million prize left for this particular game.
