Two men from Fort Myers are each a million dollars richer thanks to the Florida Lottery’s 500X The Cash scratch-off game.
Wesley Sanek, 39, and Michael Murray, 63, scratched their way to the big winnings, and both took the money in a one-time lump sum payment of $820,000.
Sanek purchased his winning ticket from Publix at 1981 North Tamiami Trail in Naples. Murray bought his from Bruno’s Food Store at 15600 McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers.
Each store will get $2,000 for selling a winning ticket.
