A ritual for a Massachusetts woman turned lucrative last week after she hit it big on a lottery scratch ticket.

According to the Massachusetts State Lottery, Donna Stigh is the first $4 million prize winner in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “4,000,000 Money Bags” instant ticket game.

Stigh, whose morning routine includes coffee and the lottery and is from Taunton, opted to receive her prize in the form of a one-time payment of $2,600,000 (before taxes).

Her winning ticket was purchased at Town Food Mart located at 426 Bay St. in Taunton. The store will receive a $40,000 bonus for its sale of this ticket.

    2,600,000 million (before taxes) don’t they mean 2,600,000 (After taxes). It is a 4 million dollar prize?

      You pay a penalty if you don’t take the money in installments.
