EASTHAM, Mass. (AP) — Newlyweds from Cape Cod are planning to buy a house, pay off student loans and buy a truck after winning $15 million on an instant scratch-off ticket.
WCVB-TV reports that Stacy and David Foster, of Orleans, who were married May 1, went to a store on Route 6 in Eastham on Saturday and asked for a $30 Supreme Millions ticket from a machine behind a different register.
The clerk told the Fosters the register was closed and said they’d have to choose a ticket behind an active one since ticket sales are tracked separately.
The Fosters claimed their $15 million grand prize Monday and went home with a one-time payment of $9.75 million after taxes.
The store will also receive $50,000.
