Harrison Porter, 46, of Fort Lauderdale, took home $4.07 million after purchasing his winning $250,000 A YEAR FOR LIFE scratch-off ticket from a Publix located at 18341 Pine Blvd. in Pembroke Pines.
The retailer will get an $8,000 bonus commission for the sale.
“One of the first things I’m going to do is get a place to live,” Porter said, after revealing the winning ticket arrived during some challenging times.
The $10 ticket offers over $176.4 million in prizes, including four top prizes of $250,000 a year for life. The odds of his win were 1 in 6.04 million.
