Cape Cod newlywed is first $15 million winner in Lottery's $30 “Supreme Millions” instant game
     
Prize won is largest offered on a Massachusetts State Lottery instant ticket

Stacy Foster of Orleans, who was just married on May 1 of this year, today claimed the first $15 million grand prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s new $30 “Supreme Millions” instant game. It is the largest instant “scratch and win” prize offered on a Mass. Lottery instant ticket.

Foster was joined by her husband David to claim her windfall at the Lottery’s Braintree headquarters. She selected the cash option on her prize, receiving a one-time payment of $9,750,000, less taxes. The couple plans to use the winnings to buy a house, which they have been saving for, pay off her student loans, and buy a new truck.

The purchase of the lucky ticket is a story unto itself. When the Fosters visited Tedeschi Food Shops, 2360 State Highway (Route 6) in Eastham on Saturday, they asked for a “Supreme Millions” ticket from the dispenser that was behind a different register, which was not open at that moment. The clerk notified them that they would have to select a ticket from the dispenser behind the active register, as the ticket sales for each register are tracked separately. As luck would have it, that is how Stacy ended up with her winning ticket. The store will receive a $50,000 retailer bonus for its sale, the highest paid by the Mass. Lottery.

There are three additional $15 million prizes and sixty-one $1 million prizes remaining in the “Supreme Millions” instant game, which went on sale Tuesday, April 28. Ten more $1 million prizes will be awarded through the game’s Second Chance Drawings, which allow players to enter their non-winning tickets online for opportunities to win substantial cash prizes.

“Supreme Millions” is the Lottery’s second $30 instant ticket, joining “World Class Millions,” which launched in April of 2014 and has produced two $15 million winners to date. Nearly three million “Supreme Millions” tickets have been sold statewide in the seven and a half weeks since the game went on sale.
