A Maryland man paying a visit to Florida found his trip paid for itself when he scored a $1 million prize from a scratch-off lottery ticket.
The Florida Lottery said Collin Reed, 39, of Baltimore, was visiting Naples when he made a stop at a Publix store and bought a $5 Gold Rush Doubler scratch-off ticket.
The ticket turned out to be a $1 million top prize winner.
Reed traveled to the Florida Lottery's Fort Myers District Office and took his prize as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $685,000.
The Publix store in Naples earned a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.
