By Staff | Jan 8, 2018

The next Lotto millionaire might just be a North Fort Myers resident.

The winning Florida Lotto ticket for last Wednesday’s drawing was sold at the North Fort Myers Winn-Dixie on Bayshore Road, making some lucky someone $11 million richer.

The winning ticket was noticed at the store with just a couple of signs that read “Winning ticket sold here” with the number $11,000,000 printed across.

In addition to the ticket-holder’s winnings, the store will receive a $70,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Requests for comment were directed to Winn Dixie’s corporate offices. Calls were not immediately returned.

As of Sunday night, the prize had not been claimed. The Jan. 3 Lotto numbers were 4, 28, 30, 36, 44, 48.

Meanwhile, it was certainly a big week for lottery winners in the state. The lone winner of the $450 million Mega-Millions jackpot was purchased in Port Richey
