Massachusetts man buys lottery tickets to break $100 bill, wins $10 million

January 26, 2015, 2:05 pm ET

A Massachusetts man who bought two lotto tickets so he could break a $100 bill to buy lunch was left stunned after he ended up scooping an astonishing $10 million in prize money.

Richard Noll only purchased two $20 Platinum Millions instant tickets at Lanzilli Groceria in East Boston so he'd have smaller notes to buy food at a sandwich shop, reports ItemLive.com.

But he ended up with much more than he bargained for when he scratched the cards — and discovered he was a newly minted multimillionaire.

Noll claimed his prize alongside his wife Leese at the lottery's Braintree headquarters on Thursday.
