Florida Man is a Serial Lottery Winner

A man from Sarasota has won $50,000 a year, for life, playing the Florida Lottery's "Lucky $200,000 a Year for Life" instant-win game.

The Florida Lottery announced the news earlier today and said 51-year-old Paul Forsythe's big win came on the back of several smaller wins on tickets bought all over the state.

"I bought several scratch-off tickets within the past few days as I traveled throughout the state and each time I won," Forsyth said.

The serial winner opted to take his winnings in annual payments, guaranteed for 20 years, of $50,000 for the rest of his life.
