Two Top Prize Instant Ticket Winners
A Wakefield woman claimed one of the $10,000 top prizes for the $2 "Toucan Play" Instant Ticket, only five days after the ticket launched. The woman explained that she usually doesn't purchase Instant Tickets because she considers herself unlucky, but the "Toucan Play" ticket caught her eye. She could not believe she won, "This is the first time I've ever won anything in my life," she stated. In disbelief, she drove to her mother's house to have her confirm that she was truly a winner. The woman plans to utilize the money won to take her 11-year-old daughter somewhere special while she's on school vacation. She purchased the winning ticket at Shaw's Supermarket, 160 Old Tower Hill Rd., Wakefield.
A Cumberland man claimed one of the $75,000 top prizes for the $5 "Baseball" Instant Ticket. The man was grinning ear to ear as he explained that his mother-in-law, who is visiting from England, purchased the ticket for him for his birthday. He plans to utilize the money won to update their home and save the remainder for their next trip to England. "Now that we have the means to book the trip, it is our turn to visit her," he stated as he reached over and embraced his mother-in-law. Their next stop was his son's baseball game, and the winner hoped that his son would experience a win today as well. The winning ticket was bought at Dave's Marketplace, 2077 Diamond Hill Rd., Cumberland.
