An everyday pit stop at a Pilot in Florida turned into a life-changing moment for an Indiana trucker after he won big on a scratch-off lottery ticket.
Driver Rickey Hartbarger, 49, bought the lucky ticket at the Pilot Travel Center on 51st Avenue in Allentown just days before Christmas.
Yesterday the Florida Lottery announced that the $20 scratch-off ticket “$5,000,000 Flamingo Multiplier” purchased by Hartbarger was a $1,000,000 winner.
Hartbarger opted for the lump sum and walked away with $719,726.80.
The odds of winning the $1 million prize are 1 in 1.14 million.
