Massachusetts man has some ideas under consideration after winning $1 million State Lottery prize on scratch ticket



Southern Massachusetts has broken a drought this week after two big State Lottery scratch ticket wins.

According to the Massachusetts State Lottery, James Seavor is the winner of a $1 million prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “Diamonds and Dollars” $5 instant ticket game.

Seavor, a retired fisherman from Swansea, opted to receive his prize in the form of a one-time payment of $650,000 (before taxes). He said that while he doesn’t have any plans for his winnings at the moment, he is considering taking a cruise.

He purchased his winning ticket at Swansea Mart, 367 Wilbur Ave. in Swansea. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for its sale of this ticket.

This week, the biggest scratch ticket prize in State Lottery history was claimed after an instant game win in Fall River.

Since the two big wins claimed in the last week, the Fall River area had not seen a winner of $1 million or more since July 2022 and a winner of over $500,000 since September of this year.
