Two lucky people win big with “The Fastest Road to Millions” scratch off in Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

Elgin Jones, 58, of Deerfield Beach, and Odalys Alfonso, 54, of Miami Beach, each hit for $1 million top prize, the Florida Lottery announced.

Jones bought his $30 ticket from Publix at 150 South Federal Highway in Deerfield Beach, while Alfonso purchased hers from Asturias Liquors & Lounge at 4687 West Flagler Street in Miami.

Each retailer will receive a $2,000 bonus commission for selling the winning tickets.

The Fastest Road to 1,000,000 scratch-off debuted in February 2020, offering the chance at 155 of those $1 million top prizes, lottery officials say.
