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!

A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

    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.
