A Stoneham woman has won $10 million in a state lottery scratch ticket game.
Im handling it OK so far, Debra A. Roberto said in a statement provided by the Massachusetts Lottery. Im planning one great Christmas, and I have my eye on a new car.
Lottery officials said the lottery's first $10 million instant prize game was created two years ago and since then, 14 $10 million prizes have been awarded.
Its rewarding to see our players win record prizes in our ground-breaking games, said Mark Cavanagh, the lottery's executive director.
Roberto, who will receive 20 annual checks for $500,000, bought the lucky Mega Cash ticket at Fast Freddy on Main Street in Wakefield, the lottery said.
