A Massachusetts man won his second $1 million lottery payout last week — less than two years after drawing a lucky ticket for the first time.
For the second time in 18 months, Rolf Rhodes of Mendon has won a $1 million prize on a Massachusetts State Lottery instant ticket.
Rhodes won his most recent prize in the "$4,000,000 Instant Jackpot" instant game. He chose the annuity option on his prize and received the first of 20 annual payments of $50,000 (before taxes).
He purchased his winning ticket at Imperial Gas and Country Store, 1 Millville Rd. in Mendon. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for its sale of the ticket.
Rhodes won his first $1 million prize in the "Hit $1,000" $10 instant game on May 22, 2018. He opted to receive that prize in the form of a one-time payment of $650,000 (before taxes). He bought that ticket at Mac Package Store, 96 Prospect Street in Milford.
Three $4 million prizes and seven additional $1 million prizes are still available in the "$4,000,000 Instant Jackpot" $10 instant game.
