BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – A couple from New Jersey says they will make the move to South Florida permanent after scoring a $1 million prize on a scratch-off just weeks after coming down to Boynton Beach as renters.
“This is the ultimate housewarming gift,” Kristen Frommer, 27, told Florida Lottery. “We moved down as renters two months ago, but now there’s no question — we’re buying a house and becoming Floridians.”
Lottery officials say Frommer won on the $5,000,000 Luck game and decided to take a lump-sum payout of $760,000.
She bought the $20 ticket at the RaceTrac at 905 West Woolbright Road in Boynton Beach. That store gets a $2,000 bonus commission.
