BOSTON (WHDH) – A Dorchester man is the latest $1 million prize winner in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “4,000,000 Gold Rush” scratch ticket game.
Gilson Gomes Monteiro, of Dorchester, chose the cash option on his prize and received a one-time payment of $650,000.
The winning ticket was purchased at Five Corners Mini Mart on Dorchester Avenue in Dorchester.
The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the ticket.
Monteiro said he plans to use some of his winnings to buy a home and a car.
Um, Gilson, we need to talk. You seriously went to get a check for $650,000 dress like you borrowed a shirt from Bob Villa? Then you threw on your best flat brimmed hat, backwards no less? You look confused as to if you want to be a homie or home improvement.
Here is my advice, buy your house and car. Make sure you save money for taxes and more hats. And don’t quit your job if you have one, you will be broke before you know it.
