A New $1 Million Lottery Winner from Wareham
Nicholas Labelle of Wareham is the 14th $1 million prize winner in the 2017 edition of the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “100X” instant game.
He bought the winning ticket at White Rose Pantry in South Easton. And in case you were wondering, yes, the store will receive a $10,000 bonus for its sale of the ticket.
Nicholas decided on the cash option and received a one-time payment of $650,000 (less tax withholdings). He and his wife plan on using the money to pay off the mortgage on their house and put some aside for their daughter’s college fund.
Believe it or not, there is still one $1 million prize out there in this edition of the $10 “100X” instant game scratch tickets.
What would I do if I won a million dollars? Well now that I know I'd be walking with roughly $650K, the first thing would be to pay off our mortgage, just like Nick and his wife are doing.
Phew, getting that paid off would make life SO much easier. We would definitely sock away some money into a college or the "starting your life" fund, as we call it, for our two kids. And then, a two-week vacation to Italy for my husband and I. Everything after that would go in the bank for retirement.
What about you, what would you do if you won $1 million dollars?
