PLANTATION, Fla. – A Broward County man has been announced as the first winner of Florida Lottery’s $5,000 A Week For Life scratch-off game.

And he’s taking home a whopping $4.66 million.

Howard Tenen, 70, of Plantation, selected that lump-sum payment instead of the $5,000 a week for life, lottery officials announced Wednesday.

Tenen bought his $10 ticket from the Publix at 225 South Flamingo Road in Plantation. That store gets a $10,000 bonus commission for selling the lucky scratcher.

The $5,000 A Week For Life game offers four of those top prizes and over $165.6 million in total cash prizes, Florida Lottery says.
