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

a million turned into 434,000 that he could deposit into bank since the feds took out their 28% and the state took their 5% right off the top. if he files he will get some of that back maybe next year. probably in this case should have take the 20 year's worth of 50,000 a year which would have only gotten him 33,500 annually.

    Wow. That was a big time win. Congratulations to the winner.

    I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

          Did I read that right? 65 million dollar prizes being offered? ?? That's got to be a  $30 ticket at least

            It does say in the article that he bought a $30 ticket.

                In Tennessee if you win 1 million or more on a scratcher then you must take it over 20-25 years. That sucks. If you win 1 million in powerball you get it all after taxes or take it over so many years. Just not fair on scratchers.

                  now i see why residents bad mouth the tennessee lottery. why would an older player buy scratch tickets and end up being stuck with a 20 year annuity payout. not that it would be the end of the world if it happened but older players are willing to suck up the loss and take the lump sum in most cases. not in tn though. eeks.

                    Sounds like he stepped in some luck before cashing that first ticket.

                    Kinda like being in the right place at the right time.

                    Congrats! Party

                      No wonder I never win anything big on the NY scratch-off tickets, the biggest second prize on any scratch-off ticket right now is only $200,000, only 4 second prizes available on that one, that really stinks compared to 65 one million dollar prizes on that Mass. ticket!  I always buy tickets at NY Lottery headquarters, the most I've won is $40.00 on a scratch-off!  Now that I realize the NY scratch-offs have such paltry second prizes, I'll stop buying them.Congrats to the winner!
