Massachusetts man collects his second $1 million lottery jackpot

News

A Massachusetts man said a snap decision to buy a scratch-off lottery ticket from a convenience store led to his winning his second $1 million jackpot in four years.

Stephen Toto of Framingham told Massachusetts State Lottery officials he hadn’t intended to buy a scratch-off ticket at the A-1 Gulf store in Framingham, but when he reached the counter he made the decision to buy a $30 The Fastest Road to $1 Million ticket.

The ticket turned out to be 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.
