- Gregory Garland of Haverhill and Zahid Ullah of Peabody are the two $1 million prize winners in Second Chance Drawing #3 in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s $30 “Supreme Millions” instant game. Their winning entries were randomly selected from over one million entries submitted for this drawing.
Garland and Ullah each chose to receive their prize in the form of a one-time payment of $650,000 (less tax withholdings). Garland plans on using a portion of his winnings to purchase a new SUV and putting the remainder towards retirement, while Ullah plans on paying off some existing bills before determining what he will do with the rest of his winnings.
To enter this Second Chance Drawing, which took place Tuesday, December 20, players submitted non-winning “Supreme Millions” tickets through the Mass. Lottery website. In addition to the two $1 million prize winners, there were 10 winners of $10,000, 100 winners of $1,000, and 1,000 winners of $100. There will be two more Second Chance Drawings throughout the life of the “Supreme Millions” ticket, each with two $1 million top prizes and the same aforementioned numbers of $10,000, $1,000 and $100 prizes. The dates of the remaining drawings will be determined based on sales of the ticket.
the Mass. Lottery’s second $30 instant ticket, offers players the chance to win $15 million, equaling the highest instant prize in Mass. Lottery history. Two $15 million prizes and 30 of the game’s 66 $1 million instant prizes remain. The game went on sale April 28, 2015.
