A guy from Massachusetts said that a spur-of-the-moment decision to purchase a scratch-off lottery ticket at a convenience shop resulted in his winning his second $1 million prise in four years.
Stephen Toto of Framingham told Massachusetts State Lottery authorities that he didn’t mean to buy a scratch-off ticket at the A-1 Gulf store in Framingham, but when he got to the counter, he decided to purchase a $30 The Fastest Road to $1 Million ticket.
The winning ticket was a $1 million jackpot winner.
Toto was already familiar with the process for claiming a lottery jackpot, after winning $1 million from a $4,000,000 Payout scratch-off ticket in 2017.
The winner selected the lump sum option for his latest winnings, taking home $650,000 before taxes.
