They say that the third time is the charm, but for a Massachusetts man, I would say the second time worked out pretty well.
John Hammill of Braintree has won a $15 million prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “Massachusetts Millionaires’ Club” instant ticket game.
This is the second big win for Hammill, who won a $1 million prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “Set For Life” game in 2006.
Hammill chose the cash option on his prize and received a one-time payment of $9,750,000 (before taxes).
His winning ticket was purchased at Adams Variety located at 22 Independence Ave in Quincy. The store will receive a $50,000 bonus for its sale of this ticket.
