Boynton man hits Mega Money jackpot

Harold Blitzer, of Boynton Beach, claimed the June 25 Mega Money jackpot of $500,000 at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee. Blitzer chose the one-time, lump-sum payment option for his winnings of $385,819.25.

 The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased from a Full Service Vending Machine at Walmart Market, located at 9840 South Military Trail in Boynton Beach.  The retailer received a bonus commission of $1,000 for selling the ticket.

 This ticket was the 28th jackpot-winning Mega Money ticket sold in Palm Beach County since 2004.

The next Mega Money drawing is at 11:15 tonight, with a $550,000 jackpot. The Mega Millions drawing is also tonight, for $70 million.
