A Tampa man won’t have to save for retirement anymore.

Gregory Montgomery, 51, has claimed the first top prize in a new $2,500 A WEEK FOR LIFE scratch-off game, according to the Florida Lottery.

He decided to go with the one-time lump sum of $2,015,000.00 — that’s a little over 2 million bucks

The odds of winning the top prize in this game, which launched earlier this month, is 1 in 7.5 million.

The overall odds of winning one of the game’s various prizes is 1 in 3.95

Johan Food Mart, 2409 E. Lake Ave. in Tampa, will also receive a $4,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.

Montgomery declined to take a photo, according to the Florida Lottery.
