Orlando man wins $500K months after claiming $1M ticket

$500,000 ticket sold at Wawa to Orlando man who bought $1M ticket from nearby 7-Eleven

Jose Nieves struck it rich — again.

The Orlando man recently claimed a top prize in the $500,000 Jackpot scratch-off game at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee, officials announced Friday.

Nieves claimed a $1 million top prize in the 10 Monopoly Millionaire scratch-off game in November.

He purchased his most recent winning ticket from a Wawa store at 13585 South Orange Ave.

He bought his November winning ticket at a 7-Eleven store at 11900 S. Orange Ave.

The stores are a little more than a mile apart.

They are both in the Southchase area of south Orange County.
