MA Lottery has first $15M winner in Supreme Millions Instant Game

Newlyweds from Cape Cod are the first $15 million winner of Massachusetts State Lottery’s Supreme Millions Instant Game, which was introduced on April 28, 2015.

How’d they win:

On Saturday, Stacy Foster and her husband walked into a convenience store on Route 6 in Eastham, MA, and requested a $30 ticket. But the store clerk told Stacy the dispenser wasn’t operating and that she would need to purchase a ticket from a different dispenser.

The broken dispenser was worth $15 million, or $9,750,000 less taxes since the couple took the one-time cash payment.

The newlyweds plan to purchase a house, pay off student loans and buy a truck with their winnings.

According to MA lottery officials, three $15M prizes and 61 $1M prizes remain to be won.

If you want to win millions but don’t want to spend $30 for a ticket, play FreeLotto.

FreeLotto winner tells his story of winning $2 million

José Reis, FreeLotto’s latest multi-million dollar winner, talks about what it’s like to become instantly rich.

“When I first received the email from FreeLotto telling me I had won this big prize, I was very surprised because I was not expecting anything.

“When I opened it, I first that it was a scam. I was very suspicious. I made my own inquiries. I found some telephone numbers, especially the ones for FreeLotto directors.

“I called them and sent emails, and they answered me. Then everything started to become clear. And I began to take the matter more seriously. I became very happy.

“I first registered at FreeLotto in 2008. And I’ve been playing for 7 years. At first, I checked the results every day. Then, of course, over time, I let it slide, which is why it took some time to realize I had won.

“I have a lot of projects in mind with the $2 million. Although I haven’t decided yet, I think I’ll probably travel, pay for my children’s studies, and finish some projects around the house, and a lot of other things, like charity, especially a program FreeLotto has launched to which I believe I’ll contribute to Amnesty International.

The only advice I can give to other players of FreeLotto, based on my experience, is to be relentless and never lose hope.”

Sounds like good advice for life.

Lottery Scammers on the Loose

Two Florida men are currently on the loose after scamming an elderly woman into purchasing a fake lottery ticket. According to reports, the victim, a 70 year-old-woman from Miami-Dade County, was waiting at a bus stop when two men approached and offered to sell her a winning lottery ticket. The man told her he was not a legal resident and therefore, unable to claim the prize himself, but would give it to her for $10,000 in cash. The elderly woman agreed and allowed the two men to drive her to the bank, where she took out the requested sum. Afterwards, she was driven to an apartment complex, where the men allegedly tried to snatch her purse. A struggle ensued, and the woman was eventually thrown from the car. The woman was shaken up, but largely uninjured, while police are still searching for the two men involved.

The Thief Who Missed $1 Million

It’s not very likely you’re relieved when your car is broken into, but that’s exactly how one Seattle couple felt last week. Their car window was smashed, and the thief stole a pair of sunglasses, leaving behind a seemingly worthless lottery ticket. The couple purchased the ticket in February for a $350 million jackpot drawing, but never bothered to check the numbers until mid-May. They soon discovered that their forgotten ticket was worth $1 million as part of a second chance prize. The couple declined to be identified publicly, but told lottery officials they plan to use their winnings to travel to Paris and Iceland – and to buy new sunglasses!

Lucky Californian Man Wins $2.7 Million

On May 26th a small market in Salinas, CA made a very big sale. Charles Messenger, a computer administration employee, purchased twenty $1 Quick Pick tickets while doing his usual grocery shopping. As luck would have it one of those tickets correctly matched five of the six numbers selected in that night’s Mega Millions drawing. Just like that, Charles won a cool $2.7 million dollars! He recalls that the shock of winning set in almost immediately, “Last night was surreal when I checked the ticket. It’s like a whole new reality.” He continued, “My son said he refused to believe me when I told him. He kept saying I was messing with him”. Charles confirmed his winning lottery ticket with the East Bay district office on his way to Las Vegas. While the family trip was planned prior to his big win, Charles did joke, “Now I can play at the $25 blackjack tables.”

Michigan Lottery Legislation Aims to Leave Lotto Winners Alone

Earlier this month a Michigan House Regulatory Reform committee approved a measure to allow state and national lottery winners to remain anonymous. The state already allows anonymity for winners collecting prizes under $10,000, but this new bill would allow the same for Mega Millions and Powerball winners. Rep. Ray Franz, a supporter of the legislation, says, “Lottery winnings, while for many is a major plus in their lives, it can be a major negative at times. It costs friendships. It costs family relationships. It costs jobs. I thought it should be an option that’s available.” Michigan would add itself to list of six other states that already allow their lottery winners to remain anonymous – Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio, and South Carolina. While many are in favor of the bill, the Lottery Commission opposes it on the grounds that it will detract from their ability to promote new winners and further encourage ticket sales. The bill will move to the full House for a vote later this summer.

Latest Virginia Lottery scratch-off winner nets $4 million

“I couldn’t breathe. It feels so surreal. It’s so unbelievable!”

Those are the comments from recent Virginia Lottery winner Jacqueline Duvall who scratched her Money Money Money ticket to reveal she is Virginia’s newest multi-millionaire.

Ms. Duvall, no relation to famous actor Robert Duvall, purchased the ticket at a Quik-E Foods in Forest, Virginia, last week, then went back to the store on Friday to pick up her $4 million from the Virginia Lottery. She could have taken the full $4 million over 30 years, but instead opted for a one-time cash payout of $2,149,572 before taxes.

Ms. Duvall purchased her ticket before a lunch break and scratched off a bit to see if she had won. When she saw the money bag icon, she knew she had won something, perhaps her money back, she initially thought. Incredibly, she put the ticket down and finished her lunch before seeing what she had won.

If you’re playing the Virginia Lottery, you should now be aware that this is the first top prize won, so there are 2 $4 million winning tickets available. The previous odds of winning the top prize were 1 in 1,305,600. Click here to view the new odds.

FreeLotto’s $2 million jackpot winner tells his story

FreeLotto’s recent $2 million jackpot winner, José Reis who lives in France, offers the following advice to all lottery players:

“Be relentless and never lose hope.”

Mr. Reis began playing FreeLotto in 2008 and would check his emails every day.

Over time, he stopped reading his FreeLotto emails every day and would only check every now and then. But he kept playing.

Then came the big day when his numbers matched the jackpot. And his official email from FreeLotto congratulating him on his win sat in his inbox, unopened.

The email sat for a few days until the subject caught his attention. He won?

He opened his email and his first reaction was that it was a scam. Two million dollars!

He read it carefully over and over. The language was pretty clear. He was a winner.

The email did not say he was eligible to win. The email didn’t ask him to purchase anything first. The email did not require him to provide a credit card or pay a fee upfront. None of that. The email just said he won.

So he emailed the FreeLotto office in New York City, not exactly sure what to expect back.

“We were wondering why he hadn’t contacted us sooner,” said a FreeLotto prize official.

A phone call was set up and the details were confirmed. Arrangements were made for a FreeLotto representative to go to his house and set up a photo shoot.

The realization that he was $2 million richer was now sinking in.

Mr. Reis needed to sign documents and understand and take care of his tax obligations.

Then came the publicity photo shoot, followed by a video interview.

Indeed, his dreams were coming true.

Mr. Reis said he plans to use the money for his children’s education, finish up some remodeling projects around his home, and to travel.

He also will be donating a portion of his winnings to National Amnesty, one of the FreeLotto supported charity programs.

His final advice to other FreeLotto players: “Check your emails!”

You may not be an immediate winner, but you have to play to have a chance of winning $11 million. If you enjoy scratch-off games and playing state lotteries, you’ll love FreeLotto. The odds are similar to state-run lotteries, except you can play for free.

California Lottery winner checked for pulse after scratching $5 million winning ticket

CA Lottery officials describe winner as “calm man, both in the face of adversity and excitement.”

After nearly 30 years of buying lottery scratchers, Doug Gary bought a big winner in Visalia, California, worth $5 million.

California Lottery officials announced Gary’s win Thursday. The Million $$ Match Scratchers ticket was purchased for $20 at Rozi’s Market, 831 Lovers Lane. The store owner will receive a $25,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

In the news release announcing the win, Gary was described as a “calm man, both in the face of adversity and excitement.”

After scratching his winning ticket while doing some yard work, he reportedly walked calmly into the house to show his wife, who failed to remain as serene as her husband.

Gary said he won $1,000 a few times playing the lottery, but “nothing like this.” He said he plays every draw game but his favorite are the $20 scratchers.

Lottery officials added, “Now he has reason to love them even more, 5 million reasons, in fact.”

Million $$ Match Scratchers offer players 29 chances to win and more than $340 million in total prizes. Tickets can be purchased from more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers, or one of the more than 4,000 Lottery Lucky Retailers.

Michigan Lottery winner hides $1 million ticket in flour jar

My favorite story of the week: A Detroit U.S. Postal Worker purchased a winning Mega Millions lottery ticket and hid it in a flour jar while he and his wife thought about it.

Then he went into work three days later and started cleaning out hhis locker. When his boss asked him what was going on, the soon-to-be millionaire told him “I got a million and I’m retiring!” After 31 years as a mail carrier.

Wouldn’t we all love to be in that position!?!

Fred Morgan had the five winning numbers (15-18-29-41-50) in the April 17 Mega Millions game.

He purchased his winning ticket at the Mobil gas station at 25828 Ford Road in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, and knew he won the day after the drawing, but he told Michigan lottery officials that he stashed the ticket in flour and a few other places while he and his wife considered what to do with the windfall.

“We watched that ticket carefully,” Morgan said. “We thought somebody may look in the sugar jar, but no one would ever check for anything valuable in the flour.”

What a great story! And you know, there’s an ever better way to play and you don’t have to hide your ticket in the flour jar. FreeLotto: It’s free. You can play from home every day. And the odds are similar.
