SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – A woman from South Hadley is the winner of a $1,000,000 prize.
A Massachusetts State Lottery spokesperson said Karen Couture entered a Second Chance Drawing in the Massachusetts State Lottery “World Class Millions” instant game. The game’s $1 million Second Chance prize is the largest ever offered in Mass. Lottery history.
Couture picked up her one-time payment of $650,000 at Mass. Lottery headquarters in Braintree last Friday. She said she plans on replacing her 150-year-old house with her winnings.
Players submit a non-winning “World Class Millions” ticket on Mass. Lottery’s website to enter the Second Chance Drawing. Couture’s winning entry was randomly selected during the January 14th drawing from more than 962,000 tickets.
