A Lake Worth beach convenience store sold one of four winning tickets in Sunday's statewide Fantasy 5 drawing, the Florida Lottery said. C&K Food Mart at North G Street and 10th Avenue North sold the ticket. The winning ticket which won the prize money was a combination of 4-5-7-12-23 and it paid $42,801.46.
In 1986, Florida voters authorized a lottery through a constitutional amendment, enacted by a two-to-one margin that would use its proceeds to enhance public education in Florida. Governor Bob Martinez and the Florida Legislature established the Florida Lottery with the mission of maximizing revenues for education to allow the people of Florida to benefit from significant additional monies while providing the best lottery games available. Over the 33-year history of the Florida Lottery, both goals have been accomplished.
The ticket was a Quick Pick, which means the lottery's computers chose the number combination for the player. The other winning tickets were sold in Kissimmee, North Fort Myers and Weeki Wachee, the lottery said.
