Ivy, his pregnant dachshund, wasn’t feeling well, so Linton raced to see her as quickly as possible.

On the drive home, he took a different route and made a quick pit stop at the store.

Linton was asked if he had any big plans with his prize.

“I still can’t believe it. This is life-changing, but I’m definitely getting Ivy a new kennel!” he said.

The store in Live Oak that sold him the winning ticket will receive a $4,000 bonus commission.

Linton chose to receive his winnings in the form of a one-time, lump-sum payment of $1,645,000.

The 100X THE CASH game launched in January and has more than $337.9million in cash prizes, including eight top prizes of $2million.

It only costs $10 to play and the overall odds of winning are 1-in-3.44, according to the game’s website.

Not everyone knows right away if they received a winning ticket.

One Michigan man, who remains unidentified, won $3.39million on a $1 Lotto 47 ticket and didn’t know he had won for weeks.

"I didn't realize I had won for a couple of weeks," he said to lottery officials.

"I stack my tickets up and then my wife scans them on the app to see if we won. When she scanned this ticket, she told me we'd won but I was certain she was just joking with me.

Adesanya, 32, has swept all comers in the middleweight division with ease and is the bookies' favourite to leave International Fight Week with his strap in tow.

MMA superfan Drake doesn't foresee anything other than an Adesanya win coming to fruition, so much so he's staked a staggering $1million (£826,000) on the Nigerian-born New Zealander having his hand raised.

Drizzy revealed his hefty wager during a late-night FaceTime with the surging superstar.

The 'Hotline Bling' star said during the call: “Bro, I already know what time it is. You know, I put a light million up.”

Adesanya, who was still cutting weight for the official weigh-ins, asked: “Light mil?”

Drake replied: “A light mill. I had to put a light mil on my brother. Return on investment is a lock.”

The Canadian later said: “I just want to wish you good luck.

“You know I love you, brother. You’re different. You’re a different guy, bro.

"I have a deep, deep, deep love and respect for you. A deep love and respect.”

Adesanya will be hoping he doesn't fall victim to the 'Drake curse' that has befallen several fighters and sports teams.

Justin Gaethje fell victim to it after Drake placed £346,000 on him to beat Charles Oliveira in May.

Jorge Masvidal was also struck by it in March when Drake laid a whopping £223,000 ($275,000) bet on him to win his UFC 272 grudge match with Colby Covington.

Covington revelled in leaving left the global superstar out of pocket after his decision victory, saying: "Let's talk about all the money Drake lost tonight.

"He needs to go back to selling those s****y albums to get back the money.

"He should've gone to America's Pick of the Week by My Bookie. I tried to give the people the pick of the week.
