An oyster farmer landed a huge $10 million catch from the Massachusetts State Lottery’s $10,000,000 Mega Fortune game. William Young Jr. bought the winning ticket while on a trip to the gas station. He immediately scratched it and had a hard time believing he had really won the top prize.
Young wants to receive the prize in a single payment of $6.5 million before taxes. He plans to set aside some money for his children and invest a portion. He still wants to continue working.
The store earned a $50,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. People have been flocking to the store for tickets since the win.
