The lottery winner of a Florida lottery winning ticket to win $1 million in a Florida state lottery is getting a check for more than $1,000,000.
The winning ticket for the April 23 state lottery was found at the home of a former employee of the lottery agency who bought the ticket from a California company.
The former employee was charged with theft after he discovered the ticket was fake.
The lottery agency said in a statement that it was notified of the sale of the ticket by the California company and that it cooperated fully with authorities.
The agency did not provide additional details.
The agency has not released the name of the winner of the jackpot.
