Boston - A man from Revere, Massachusetts bought two lotto tickets at a grocery shop in Boston because he wanted to break his $100 bill, and he ended up winning $10 million.
Lottery officials announced on Thursday that Richard Noll and his wife claimed their prize in earlier this week at the lottery headquarters in Braintree. Noll decided to choose a one-time payment, which is $6.5 million after taxes.
Noll is going to use some of the winnings to purchase a house, as well as make some investments and he wants to bring his granddaughter to Disney World. The grocery store will receive $50,000, which is a bonus they get for selling the winning ticket.
The two tickets that he bought were $20 ones. The name of them is 'Platinum Millions,' according to CNBC.
Noll is only the third person to win $10 million in the Platinum Millions.
This is not the first time someone has won the lottery in such a way. Recently, a man from California dreamed about some numbers, which he played in a lottery and he ended up winning almost $600,000. The man who won that money said he will be paying off what he and his wife owes, help their kids with college and that they just want to live in peace.
