Hialeah man claims $2M Mega Money win

Jorge Hodelin, of Hialeah, claimed the May 14 Mega Money jackpot of $2 million at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee.

Hodelin chose the one-time, lump-sum payment option of $1,631,031.45.

 The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at Verdadero Supermarket, located at 8074 NW 103rd Street, Suite 14 in Hialeah. The retailer received a bonus commission of $1,000.

 Mega Money is pretty popular in Miami-Dade; Hodelin's  ticket was the 76th jackpot-winning Mega Money ticket sold in Miami-Dade County since 2004.

 The next Mega Money -- not to be confused with Mega Millions -- drawing will be held Friday, with a $1.3 million jackpot.
