For most people, the simple choice to buy a lottery ticket after work doesn’t lead to a big payout, but for a Leominster man it paid off big time. Kenneth Delgado won the $15 million grand prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “Millions” game earlier this month. 

He chose the cash option, according to the Massachusetts Lottery, and received a one-time payment of $9.75 million before taxes. The store where Delgado bought the ticket, a Mr. Mike’s at 280 New Lancaster Road, will receive a $50,000 bonus for the sale of the ticket. 

Another big winner this month hails from Lynnfield. Emily Bartlett won the $4 million grand prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “Emeralds 50X” game. Bartlett received a one-time payment of $2.6 million before taxes, and plans on using part of the winnings to buy a house, according to the Massachusetts Lottery
