TALLAHASSEE – A Jacksonville woman has claimed the grand prize from a Florida Lottery scratch-off ticket.

According to a news release, she purchased the winning ticket from the Walmart Market on Merrill Road. She paid just $5 to play the $500,000 Jackpot Multiplier.

It's unclear if she chose to take the winnings as a one-time lump sum. The game's overall odds of winning are one in 4.01.

Just a week ago, there were some other Jacksonville lotto winners. A Jacksonville man took a $2 million lump sum playing the Gold Rush Classic scratch-off. A 74-year-old Jacksonville woman hit the $4.5 million jackpot playing the Florida Lotto.
