A Massachusetts woman won the “Decade of Dollars” prize of $20,000 a month for the next 10 years earlier this month.
Andrea Lynn of Shirley purchased the winning ticket on April 7 at Honey Farms, 134 Leominster-Shirley Road, in Lunenberg. Lynn opted for yearly lump sum payments of the prize, meaning she received $240,000 before taxes and will continue to do so for the next nine years.
The store received a $24,000 bonus for the sale of the winning ticket.
The odds of winning the grand prize in “Decade of Dollars” are 1 in 4,032,000, according to the Mass. State Lottery website.
Overall, there were more than 600 lottery tickets worth at least $600 won or claimed in Massachusetts as of Thursday, including 13 in Springfield and 24 in Worcester.
The Massachusetts State Lottery releases a full list of all the winning tickets each day. The list only includes winning tickets worth more than $600.
The two largest lottery prizes won in the state of Massachusetts so far in 2023 were $33 million and $31 million Mega Millions jackpot prizes.
The tickets were each sold a week apart, with the $33 million ticket for the Tuesday, Jan. 24 drawing purchased from a Stop & Shop in Belchertown. The winner came forward to claim the prize on March 1 through the Skylark Group Trust.
The $31 million Mega Millions jackpot ticket was won on Jan. 31. The winning ticket was bought in Woburn from a Gibbs gas station, and the winner claimed the prize on March 8 through S & L Trust.
