Two Florida men claimed the Mega Money jackpot of $2 million Monday in Tallahassee.

Pashuk Paloka, 56, of Jacksonville claimed the April 8 jackpot, while Herbert Heck, 61, of Hallandale, claimed the March 18 jackpot.

Paloka will be receiving his winnings in one lump sum of $765,909.33.

Heck will also be receiving his winnings of $1,528,562.30 in one lump sum.

Paloka purchased his winning ticket at a Publix at 2875 University Blvd. W. in Jacksonville, while Heck purchased his at a Winn-Dixie at 1515 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd. in Hallandale.

The Publix and Winn-Dixie will each receive a bonus commission of $1,000 for selling winning tickets.

Sales from the jackpots generated more than $3.6 million for Florida students and schools.

The next Mega Money drawing is Tuesday at 11:15 p.m., with a jackpot of $500,000
