Massachusetts man thought he won just $2,000, instead he became a millionaire



A Massachusetts man thought he had won just $2,000 but it turns out he had won much more.

The Massachusetts State Lottery has announced that David Watts has won a $2 million prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “$2,000,000 50X Cashword” instant ticket game.

Watts, who is from Holbrook, initially thought the ticket was a $2,000 winner before discovering two additional words and a 2X multiplier. He opted to receive his prize in the form of a one-time payment of $1,300,000 (before taxes). He plans on putting his winnings toward his retirement.

He purchased his winning ticket at T Square Food Shop located at 31 North Franklin St. in Holbrook. The store will receive a $20,000 bonus for its sale of this ticket.
