A trip to the gas station paid off big in Land O’ Lakes. 61-year-old William Mallette decided to take a lump-sum payment of $790,000 after winning “The Fastest Road To $1,000,000,” a scratch-off game offered right now by the Florida Lottery. He got the ticket at a Marathon station on Land O’ Lakes Boulevard, according to Channel 8. They’ll get $2,000 for selling the winner. The odds of winning a prize on this $30 ticket are 1 in 2.79. A 28-year-old man in Venice scratched another one of the grand prizes earlier this month.
