One Naples man just found a way to beat the inflation. He won a million dollars on a 500x The Cash Florida Lottery Scratch off. Andrew Vander Wall of Naples turned his winning ticket in at the Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. He chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $820,000.00.

Andrew was playing one of those $50 tickets. Bet big – win big

“It’s crazy!” Vander Wall said. “I’m still freaking out.”

Andrew purchased his winning ticket at Circle K, located at 6615 Dudley Drive in Naples. The store will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning Scratch-Off ticket. That’s the Circle K just off Pine Ridge near I-75. I remember getting gas there one night after an after party at that Best Western. I think we were there after getting kicked out of Pelican Larry’s. That was lemon drop night. I should have bought a lottery ticket, I guess.

Congratulations on your big win, Andrew Vander Wall.

Here Are The Best Lottery Tickets To Buy This Month

I love scratch-off lottery tickets and if you’re wondering what the best lottery tickets in Florida to buy this month are, we have the answer.

My favorite scratchers are the crossword puzzles. Because they take more time to complete, I feel like I’m getting my money’s worth. Same with the Bingo cards! I get sucked in as I’m walking out of Publix right around the corner from my house in Fort Myers. I’ve gotten better with not giving in EVERY time, but the allure of paying a few bucks to possibly win big is definitely there for me.

Whether you have a card preference like me, or just want to pick a ticket that you think will pay off, the goal IS to win right? So wouldn’t it be nice to know what your odds are to better your chances of winning? Good news, LottoEdge put together a list of the 10 best to buy this month. Now of course, this doesn’t guarantee you a win, but it may help improve your odds. And you’ll have to spend a bit more than just a few bucks. But it might be worth it!
