MASSACHUSETTS – One man hit a huge stroke of luck after buying two lottery tickets at a Boston sandwich shop to break a $100 bill so he could buy lunch. It was his lucky day, because the man won a $10 million jackpot!
The man, Richard Noll, claimed the prize at the lottery headquarters in Braintree earlier this week. He chose to receive the money in a one-time payment of a measly $6.5 Million after taxes.
In a brief interview, Noll said he only bought the two Platinum Millions instant lottery tickets when he went into a sandwich shop and needed to break a $100 bill to pay for lunch. The shop receives a $50,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket, and all the excitement and promotion that comes from selling a winning lottery ticket.
Noll said he will buy a house, make some investments, and take his granddaughter to Walt Disney World.
