A Marshfield mother of three hit the jackpot after buying a winning scratch ticket from a Weymouth convenience store.
Christine Bunszel claimed the largest instant “scratch and win” prize offered on a Mass. Lottery instant ticket, according to a statement released from the Massachusetts State Lottery Tuesday. This was the second $15 million grand prize to be collected in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s $30 “Supreme Millions” instant game.
Bunszel, who purchased her lucky ticket at the 7-Eleven located at 585 North St. in East Weymouth, received a one-time payment of $9,750,000, before tax withholdings. She said she plans on using her winnings payout “to buy a house, a new car and provide for her family,” according to the state lottery.
In the state’s “Supreme Millions” game, two $15 million prizes remain.
