Congratulations are in order for Timothy Perry of Southbridge.  The Massachusetts State Lottery announced he claimed a $1 million prize awarded from the “$4,000,000 Payout” scratch ticket.

The Lottery says Perry chose the cash option on his prize and received a one-time payment of $650,000 before taxes.  He plans on using his winnings to buy a house and to send his mother on vacation.

While he may not technically be a millionaire, he was pretty lucky because he didn’t even purchase the ticket.  Perry says received it as a gift from a friend.

In case you were wondering, the winning ticket was purchased at A1 Mart, located at 179 Elm Street in Southbridge.

The lottery says there are still two remaining $4 million prizes and four additional $1 million prizes on that particular $10 scratch ticket.
