Florida Lottery winner claims half of $16 million top prize

Florida Lottery winner claims half of $16 million top prize

Thursday, September 1, 2016

Approaching your 70th birthday can be tough; however, a several million birthday prize could brighten things up. A $8 million share of the $16 million jackpot will make the perfect birthday present for Carl Benedict, a resident of probably the oldest city in the U.S., St. Augustine, also known for its Spanish colonial architecture as well as some fantastic Atlantic Ocean beaches.

The winner opted for a popular choice of getting his prize as a one-time, lump-sum pay-off, in this case amounting to $6,051,759.12. He also refrained from disclosing his further plans about his cash prize. However, Publix, the popular St. Augustine retailer who sold the ticket to the winner was happy to receive the commission of $40,000 for selling the winning ticket. Florida lottery itself has generated nearly $14 million for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund through the ticket sales for this jackpot.
