A feeling of dÃ©jÃ vu must have come over Neal Stanley of Chelmsford, Mass. when he visited the Massachusetts Lottery’s Braintree headquarters to claim a $1 million prize he won playing the Billion Dollar Blockbuster instant game.
For many lottery players, a grand prize win is a once in a lifetime experience, but not for Stanley “ this is his second $1 million win playing the popular $20 Billion Dollar Blockbuster ticket.
I wish I knew his secret.
He claimed his first big win on March 27, 2008 from a Blockbuster ticket he purchased at Cumberland Farms in Chelmsford.
For his most recent win, the retired grandfather of threewill receive annual prize payments of $50,000 (minus state and federal taxes) for the next 20 years.
When asked what he planned to do with his winnings, Stanley replied, Spend it!
Hell why not? It’s what I do if I won twice.
