A Plant City man has claimed the $3 million prize he won in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing.

Sure, it wasn't the $1.5 billion jackpot won in South Carolina, but it's still a healthy amount.

Pericles Procopis, 53, matched all five white ball numbers -- but missed the Mega Ball, according to the Florida Lottery.

Lotter officials said Procopis bought the ticket at a RaceTrac gas station in Orlando.

The gas station gets a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
