- A Brooksville man will now be receiving $260,000 every year, for at least 20 years.

The Florida Lottery announced Joseph Torraco, III, 40, as the latest winner in the $5,000 A WEEK FOR LIFE Scratch-Off game. He purchased his ticket from the 7-Eleven Gas Station at 18902 North Dale Mabry Boulevard in Lutz.
