There have been many strange wins reported recently. We told you about a man from Iraq who played the lottery online and won $6.4 million, and now this is a story about a man from Cape Cod in Massachusetts, who has just come first in a competition, but not for oyster shucking. This time, he became a millionaire by winning a top lottery prize.
The winner’s name is William “Chopper” Young Jr. and he has recently won the top prize in Massachusetts’ State Lottery. He won $10 million with their Mega Fortune game. William bought his winning ticket at an Express Mart store on Route 6 in Wellfleet, Cape Cod.
William, in fact, won his big prize earlier in the summer, but he decided not to claim the winnings until recently this week. It has not been revealed under which circumstances he bought his Mega Fortune ticket, but it could have been on his break, according to one of his close friends.
The winner is self-employed and has made the decision to receive a one-time payout of $6.5 million instead of the annuity payments. According to the Massachusetts State Lottery, William wants to invest the money wisely for the future and to also help out his family.
The lottery winner is well known in his community as “Chopper” because he was the winner of the 2009 Wellfleet Oyster Fest Shuck-Off competition, as well as the winner of the 2008 Guinness World Oyster Opening Championship. He was also the winner at the 2006 World Invitational Oyster Shucking competition. Clearly this man is used to being a winner, and this latest lottery win is no exception!
Your lucky day is waiting for you to grab hold of it, too! Don’t waste any more time. To be a winner, you need to also be a lucky lotto player.
We wish you all the best,
