An Escambia County man has claimed his share of a $2 million lottery jackpot.

Joseph Leccese, 54, of Pensacola, claimed his share of the March 19 Mega Money jackpot of $2 million at Florida Lottery headquarters. Leccese chose the one-time, lump-sum payment option for his winnings, in the amount of $808,134.53. A second jackpot-winning ticket was claimed by Alberto Colon of Sanford.

Leccese’s winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at Publix at 9251 University Parkway in Pensacola. The retailer received a bonus commission of $500 for selling the jackpot-winning Mega Money ticket. This ticket was the ninth jackpot-winning Mega Money ticket sold in Escambia County since 2004.
