Lottery Winner's Big Win was Bigger than he Expected

Massachusetts man got the shock of his life when he went to pick up his lottery winnings last week. Jeremy Locket thought he would be picking up a check for $50,000, but Massachusetts Lottery officials informed him his Lifetime Spectacular scratchcard would ensure many more checks to come because he had won $50,000 a year, for life.

Locket and his wife, Rabina, were so overjoyed by the news that they began doing a victory dance around the lobby. "They went nuts," a lottery representative said.
Locket decided to take his winnings as a lump sum and will receive $650,000, minus taxes.
