Massachusetts LotteryMassachusetts Lottery: Massachusetts husband, wife are both $1 million lottery winnersRating:

A husband and wife from Southeastern Massachusetts have now each cashed winning $1 million Massachusetts State Lottery instant tickets.

The husband, in fact, has won twice.

Janet Pflaumer-Phillips of Lakeville claimed her $1 million prize on Monday. She won on a $30 "Diamond Millions" instant ticket, according to the Massachusetts State Lottery. She bought the ticket at A&A Petro, 381 West Grove St. in Middleborough, which will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling it.

Her husband, Kevin, won his $1 million prizes in April of 2014 and September of 2016. His winning tickets were purchased at Trucchi's Supermarket, 438 West Grove Street in Middleborough, and Shaw's, 95 Washington St. in Canton.

Janet plans to help family and friends with her money, according to the Massachusetts Lottery.

There are 78 additional $1 million prizes remaining in the "Diamond Millions" instant ticket game, according to the Lottery.

        It must be way too easy to win in that state too.

          You're too funny. 

          If you ever have time go to their website and read how many million (+) dollar scratch tickets they have.  It is phenomenal.  As I understand it they don't get rid of a particular game until all the top prizes have been won.  With their second chance lottery games on scratch tickets, just like California, you do have to be a physical resident to enter.  I know because I've tried both states before.

                Hmm......

                Mass. lottery

                I wonder of those tickets were intended to go to a couple of guys named Guido and Luigi

                Scared

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners.

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  Yes, what a coincidence they are from MA, a state with an odds-defying number of repeat scratch off winners. So many repeat winners, in fact, that the state enacted a policy to start investigating repeat winners to root out fraud. Nothing fishy here at all, I'm sure. LOL

                      Nice wins for the both of them.

                      I'm wondering if they purchase books of tickets each time they have won.

                        cottoneyedjuoe, 

                        A few years ago tghere was a news article about an awful lot of wiseguys (ahem!) winning Mass. lottery jackpots, or so the story went.

                            Now, that's noteworthy. Did we not have a situation recently where the top prizes on a million dollar scratcher tickets were already " won" in some States, yet the lottery kept selling them as though those prizes were still in the running?
