Millbury resident Robert Babbidge has become the first winner of the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “$ 4,000,000 Brilliant Titanium” scratch card grand prize.
Babbidge chose the winning $ 4,000,000 ticket with some luck, according to the lottery website. Babbidge told the lottery that his favorite number was the new one and so he chose the new number bin when he bought the ticket at JT’s Corner Store in Millbury.
That decision paid off when Babbidge claimed $ 2,600,000, before taxes, in a single cash payment.
The JT’s Corner store, located at 238 Millbury Ave., will receive a $ 40,000 bonus on ticket sales, the lottery added.
