$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.

Miguel Pilgram, 40,  is the lucky winner and he has chosen to take his prize money as a one time lump sum payment of more than $29 million.

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.

The store that sold the winning ticket to Pilgram received a $110,000 bonus.
