TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A Broward County man is now a multimillionaire after he spent just $10 on a scratch-off ticket, the Florida Lottery said Friday.
Harrison Porter, 46, of Fort Lauderdale took home $4,070,000 after purchasing his winning $250,000 A YEAR FOR LIFE scratch-off ticket from a Publix located at 18341 Pine Boulevard 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.
