TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Lottery has announced that James Bocchini of Miramar Beach is the grand prize winner of a 2018 Winnebago motorhome.
The motorhome, provided by Lazydays RV, was part of the Lottery’s GameDay Cash Promotion, which gave players the chance to win cash and prizes while supporting their favorite Florida college team all season long.
All Florida Lotto, Fantasy 5 and Fast Play (Cornhole Cash) tickets purchased by Nov. 27 could be entered to win. Participating universities included Florida State University, University of Central Florida, University of Florida, University of Miami and University of South Florida.
The RV grand prize drawing was held on Nov. 28. A frequent Fantasy 5 player, Bocchini said he was shocked and excited to win such a life-changing prize. “My daughter lives in Alberta, Canada, and my wife and I are already planning our first trip in the new motorhome to go and visit her this spring,” he said.
Players who purchased qualifying tickets from Sept. 1 through Nov. 27 collected symbols to earn entries by downloading the free GameDay Cash App on their smartphone or tablet, which they used to scan the bar code on their ticket. Players could also enter their ticket numbers on the Lottery’s website.
Each time a player entered a ticket in the promotion, they had a chance to be selected for a bonus game to win $25 cash or Florida Lottery coupons. In addition to the RV grand prize drawing, each team had four Fan Experience drawings and a Grand Prize drawing, with prizes including season tickets, team merchandise and free Florida Lottery scratch-off tickets.
