Massachusetts man has long overdue plans after hitting $1 million State Lottery prize



A Massachusetts man has some plans that have been a long time coming now that he has hit big money on a State Lottery scratch ticket.

According to the Massachusetts State Lottery, Charles Moran of Winthrop is the winner of a $1 million prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s new “$4,000,000 Lion’s Share” $10 instant ticket game.

Moran, who was joined by longtime friend Robin McDonough when claiming his prize at the Lottery’s headquarters in Dorchester, chose the cash option on his prize and received a one-time payment of $650,000 (before taxes). He said that he plans to purchase a car and take a long overdue vacation with his winnings.

He bought his winning ticket at Bell Isle Wine and Spirits, 1114 Saratoga St. in East Boston. The store receives a $10,000 bonus for its sale of this ticket

    I’m so happy for him. It couldn’t have happened to a much nicer person. He works very hard and is an absolute gentleman 😊
