A man named James Caldwell won a $28,759,280.93 lottery jackpot. Winner Caldwell went to the Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee to claim the prize without any fanfare. He did not even have his picture taken or give any statement.
Caldwell had purchased the winning ticket from a Circle K Store at South Ferncreek Avenue. It was a Quick Pick ticket which made him a millionaire many times over, and gave the store a $160,000 commission.
Though Caldwell will not have any financial worries in the near future, he seems concerned about maintaining his anonymity. He asked that the money be paid in one lump sum to a company he has just set-up named BJEWELL LLC.
