Nearly nine months after winning a $25,000 a year for life prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery, the lottery player has finally claimed their prize.
The prize, which was won off of a “Lucky for Life” ticket sold in Teaticket, was claimed on Sept. 1 by a trust, according to the lottery.
C & C Revocable Trust of East Falmouth was represented by trustee Paula Barbosa. The prize was claimed at the Massachusetts State Lottery headquarters in Dorchester and opted to receive its prize in the form of a one-time payment, which was $390,000 before taxes.
The winning ticket was purchased at Express Mart in Falmouth, which is located at 4 Alphonse St. The store will also receive a $5,000 bonus for its sale of the ticket.
Overall, there were more than 390 winning lottery tickets worth at least $600 claimed or sold in Massachusetts on Dec. 24, 2019, including nine in Springfield and eight 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 largest lottery prize won in Massachusetts this year was worth $16.35 million, which was part of the game Megabucks Doubler. It was purchased at Cumberland Farms in Ware. There were also two $15 million prizes won in the commonwealth this year.
