INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — A 30-year-old Vero Beach resident claimed a $2 million top prize in the FLORIDA 100X THE CASH Lottery scratch-off game, the Lottery announced Monday.
Taylor Lubas, trustee of the Haystack Invest Irrevocable Trust, got the prize at the Lottery’s West Palm Beach district office. The money was chosen to be awarded in a lump-sum amount of $1.645 million.

Lubas claimed the prize Aug. 24, said Michele Griner, Florida Lottery spokesperson.
Beginning May 25, the names of Lottery winners who claim prizes of $250,000 or more are temporarily exempt from public disclosure for 90 days of the date the prize is claimed, unless the winner waives it, according to the Lottery.
Lubas’ name was released after the 90 days as Lottery officials researched rules regarding trusts, said Michelle McFatter, a Florida Lottery communications specialist. Other issues, such as Hurricane Ian, also delayed the release, McFatter said.
The winning ticket was bought from Publix in the 1400 block of Sebastian Boulevard in Sebastian. The store will get a $4,000 bonus for selling the ticket.
