Lottery winner wins again with $1M scratch ticket at lottery headquarters

Massachusetts LotteryMassachusetts Lottery: Lottery winner wins again with $1M scratch ticket at lottery headquarters

Rating:

BOSTON — A Medford, Massachusetts, man cashing in a $1,000 scratch ticket won another $1 million after he stopped to buy another ticket in the lobby of the Massachusetts State Lottery's Braintree headquarters.

Chi Chan arrived in Braintree on Wednesday to redeem his $1,000 winner. On his way out Chan bought a $30 ticket at the vending machine inside lottery headquarters.

A short time after, Chan was at the bank when he scratched the ticket and found he had won $1 million.

On Thursday, Chan returned to Braintree to cash in his latest winnings.

The Medford resident opted to receive the prize in a one-time cash payment of $650,000 before taxes.

Chan isn't the only lottery winner in the Boston area to cash in on a large sum of money more than once. In fact, a woman from Lynn won two $1 million prizes over the course of 7 months, said Teja — her first win was in June and her second in January.

"Ultimate Millions," the game Chan won his larger prize on, had only gone on sale a day before he won the $1 million.

There are four $15 million prizes and 65 $1 million prizes left in the Ultimate Millions instant game.

The WWE has the Ultimate Warrior and Massachusetts has the Ultimate Millionaire thanks to Ultimate Millions!

    In the 2nd paragraph of the article, can we change "case" to cash?

    Thanks

    • Don't chase the numbers you play.
    • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
    • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.

              nope, that's the base reduction in the value of the win if you choose the cash option. at least another 33% will be requested by federal and state tax vultures by next april.

                  Isn't that horrible?
                  You really, really need to win something significant to be considered "ahead".

                  I hate that.

                      What a scam.  A million should mean a million regardless.

                        I'm telling you, man.

                        "All Prizes Are Tax Paid."  Should be the next advertised incentive for players.

                        Us regular players, here, play no matter what.  But, I see this coming down the road. 

                        Any comments on that?

                          Isn't that what the Hot Lotto did? well maybe not all prizes but the jackpot I think is.

                            Congratulation to Chi Chan on both wins. It not every day you get to claim a 
                            prize at the Lottery Headquarter two days in a row.
