Some people work their behinds off their whole lives before they can save enough to retire on. At only 23 years young, Darwin Aguirre Portillo is now set for life after investing $5 on a scratch ticket.
The landscaper from Brewster snagged the top prize in the “$2,500 a Week for Life” scratch-off game, after buying the lucky ticket at a gas station on the way home from work. He stands to receive approximately $1.39 million net of taxes. Portillo is now thinking about going back to school, buying a car and a house, and perhaps going into business for himself.
