Nearly nine months after winning a $25,000 a year for life prize in the Massachusetts state lottery, the lottery player has finally claimed his prize.
The prize, which was won on a “Lucky for Life” ticket sold in Teaticket, was claimed on September 1 by a trust, according to the lottery.
C & C Revocable Trust of East Falmouth was represented by trustee Paula Barbosa. The prize was claimed at the Massachusetts State Lottery headquarters in Dorchester and elected to receive its prize as a one-time payment, which was $390,000 before taxes.
The winning ticket was purchased at Express Mart in Falmouth, located at 4 Alphonse Street. The store will also receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the ticket.
Overall, more than 390 winning lottery tickets worth at least $600 were claimed or sold in Massachusetts on December 24, 2019, including nine in Springfield and eight in Worcester.
The Massachusetts State Lottery publishes a complete list of all winning tickets daily. The list only includes winning tickets over $600.
The biggest lottery prize won in Massachusetts this year was worth $16.35 million, which was part of the Megabucks Doubler game. It was purchased from Cumberland Farms in Ware. Two $15 million prizes were also won in the Commonwealth this year.
