$52 million Florida Lottery jackpot claimed
TALAHASEE, Fla. – It has been confirmed that a man from Miami claimed a Florida Lottery jackpot prize of $52 million on Monday.

Mr. Pilgram said that he doesn’t normally check his numbers right away, but the store manager told him they sold the winning ticket, so he decided to check.
