When Hilary Alma went to the gym, she was simply aiming to maintain her physical fitness. A side trip to a lottery outlet on the way there did much to improve her financial health as well.
The $30 “Ultimate Millions” instant ticket she bought at the Mashpee County Store revealed the top prize of $15 million! Now she can buy her own gym if she wants to. But the winner sensibly chose the annuity option which will pay her the full amount in $750,000 installments over the course of 20 years. She says part of the prize money she has received will go into home repairs.
