Nicholas Labelle, of Wareham, got the surprise of a lifetime when he became the fourteenth $1 million prize winner in the 2017 edition of the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “100X” instant game.
Labelle chose the cash option on his prize and received a one-time payment of $650,000, although taxes will be withheld. He and his wife plan on using his winnings to pay off the mortgage on their house and put some aside for their daughter’s college education.
He purchased his winning ticket at White Rose Pantry, 277 Turnpike St. in South Easton. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for its sale of the ticket.
One $1 million prize is still available in this edition of the $10 “100X” instant game.
