ATTLEBORO, Mass. (CBS) – You will be hard pressed to find a more “heartwarming” lottery story than what happened recently to a Massachusetts man.
Alexander McLeish, who underwent open heart surgery in early November, won a $ 1 million prize from the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “$ 5,000,000 100X Cashword” instant scratch card game after a friend sent him a welcome card with three lottery tickets inside.
After scraping the “Your Letters” part of one of the tickets, the first three letters were McLeish’s initials, which are “AWM”. The word that appeared on the bottom row of the winning ticket was “HEART”.
McLeish claimed the award Friday. He chose the cash option, which will pay him $ 650,000 before tax.
McLeish told the Massachusetts State Lottery that he had previously won a $ 1,000 prize on a lottery ticket given to him by the same friend as a birthday present.
The winning scratch card coupon for McLeish was purchased at a store in Carver, Massachusetts.
