Lorraine Vitagliano got a great Christmas present: $1 million from a $5 Lottery scratch ticket.
The $1,000,000 Super Buck$ instant game offers 10 $1 million prizes.
The winner was purchased by Vitagliano's sister at the Gateway Newsstand at the Northshore Mall in Peabody, according to information provided by the Massachusetts Lottery Commission.
The store will receive a $10,000 commission for selling the lucky ticket.
Vitagliano went to Braintree with her husband, Alphonse, her son Mark and her daughter Michelle to cash the ticket in.
The Robin Road resident will collect 20 annual payments of $50,000, less federal and state taxes. She could not be reached by telephone.
