For the second time in three years, an East Arlington man has won a $1 million prize on an instant ticket from the Massachusetts State Lottery.
Steven Felsher, 63, a statistician, claimed his first $1 million prize on July 29, 2016, in the $10,000,000 Diamond Millionaire $20 instant game, YourArlington reported at the time.
His latest prize was won in the $4,000,000 Payout $10 instant game. As he did with his first prize, Felsher chose to receive his winnings in the form of a one-time payment of $650,000 (before taxes), WCVB reports.
Felsher plans to do what he did after the first time he won a $1 million prize -- go on vacation with his family. He would also like to buy a new camera and new phones for him and his wife, Paula.
Both of his $1 million prize winning tickets were purchased at Broadway Market at 94 Broadway in Arlington. The store will once again receive a $10,000 bonus for its sale of a $1 million prize-winning ticket.
