There were also three $100,000 prizes sold Tuesday, each from the “Mass Cash” game and each from the same Centerville Food Mart in Centerville.
Sometimes, the Massachusetts State Lottery said, players buy multiple tickets with the same number. This is especially true for the game “Mass Cash,” which “offers the best odds of winning $100,000 of any of our games,” the lottery added.
