June 25, 2013 – David Steimel, a 60-year-old resident of Port Richey, Fla., can throw himself a birthday party to remember after claiming the $500,000 top prize on one of the Florida Lottery’s Gold Rush Tripler scratch-off games.

It’s about a four hour drive from Steimel’s hometown of Port Richey to the Florida Lottery’s claims center in Tallahassee, where Steimel picked up his half-million dollar prize.

This win with the popular Gold Rush Tripler leaves only five of the second-tier $500,000 prizes left to be won.  The game offers a top prize of $3,000,000, and there are three of the original twelve $3 million prizes to be won.

The overall odds of winning on the Gold Rush Tripler are one in 2.95
