Double Bonanza: Two Massachusetts Players Win $1 Million Each in Same Lottery Game, Only 25 Minutes Apart!
3 weeks ago
Luck was truly in the air at Massachusetts Lottery Commission on Thursday when two players, surprisingly both from the same state, claimed $1 million prizes from the same game within a short time frame of 25 minutes. While the winners seemed as surprised as anyone, their reactions were a stark contrast, creating a splendid spectacle of celebration for those presenting the generous checks.
The first winner hails from North Attleboro and, rightly so, asked to remain anonymous. According to the Massachusetts State Lottery officials, this lucky player chose the numbers for the Cash Match instant game and his decision proved to be fruitful, as it led him to the dazzling $1 million prize. After taxes and mandated withholdings, his take-home winnings still amounted to an extraordinary sum. Along with his dream of buying a home, the winner also mentioned plans of saving and investing a part of his new fortune for a secure future.
Meanwhile, the second winner from Chicopee was identified as Michael Rocca, who with a twinkle in his eye and spring in his step roused equal excitement among those present when he also claimed a $1 million prize. By a strike of luck, his win also came from the same Cash Match instant game. Rocca holds a more immediate plan of treating himself to an impromptu holiday, helping a relative financially, and stashing away the rest for what he hopes will be an early retirement.
What makes this story even more surreal is the odds they beat. According to The Lottery Lab, the chances of winning the Cash Match instant game's $1 million grand prize are 1 in 5,040,000, and here were two winners hitting the jackpot within a span of just 25 minutes. It's not an everyday event that the stars align in such a manner, creating a lottery sensation that Massachusetts won't forget in a hurry.
