Newlyweds in Massachusetts received a memorable wedding gift when they won $15 million on an instant scratch-ticket in the Massachusetts State Lottery.
The couple, Stacy and David Foster, picked up the winning $30 Supreme Millions ticket at a store on Route 6 in Eastham on Saturday, The Associated Press reported via MSN.
The newlyweds were joined in matrimony on May 1, 2015. As a result of selling the winning lotto ticket, the store on Route 6 will receive $50,000.
Stacy Foster chose the one-time payment option as she claimed her multimillion dollar prize on Monday, which, after taxes, totaled $9,750,000.
The family claims to have a plan which entails buying a house, paying off student loans and purchasing a truck, WCVB-TV reported.
The couple asked for a $30 Supreme Millions ticket which was tucked away inside of a machine behind a different register.
The clerk indicated that the register was closed and they would need to choose a ticket behind an active one because all ticket sales are tracked separately.
As luck would have it, that’s how she ended up with her winning ticket.
