BRAINTREE, Mass. (WWLP) – An investment in a $30 scratch ticket paid off in a big way for a roofer from Easthampton.
According to the Massachusetts State Lottery, Gregory Kilbride is the third person to win a $1 million prize in the new “World Class Millions” scratch game.
Kilbride has chosen to accept his winnings in a single cash payment of $650,000 before taxes. He told lottery officials that he plans to invest his winnings.
The winning ticket was purchased at the Pump N Market on Old South Street in Northampton, which will receive $10,000 from the lottery for making the sale.
The most expensive scratch game in state history, “World Class Millions” went on sale in late April. So far, no one has won the grand prize of $15 million.
