A Gulfport man spent $1 on a Jackpot Triple Play drawing and cashed out with $1.7 million on Tuesday, December 1.
Jackson Hyde purchased the winning ticket from the Kwik Stop on 5227 22nd Ave. S. The 34-year-old received a $1,467,311.36 lump-sum payment from the State of Florida.
“I sell winning tickets all day long,” said a Kwik Stop cashier who prefers to remain nameless.”Sometime people win $5, sometimes millions. As long as they’re happy I’m happy.”
The gas station received a $2,000 bonus commission following Hyde’s win.
Jackpot Triple Play players get three sets of lottery numbers that are held Tuesday and Friday nights at 11:15 p.m.
