Megabucks for Montague Man

Wednesday's $2.15 million Megabucks Doubler jackpot has been claimed by a player from Monatague, Massachusetts.

Speaking to 22News, Massachusetts State Lottery Spokeswoman Lisa MacDonald confirmed the prize was claimed on Thursday and identified the lucky winner as Donald Hutchinson.

Hutchinson purchased his winning ticket from the Cumberland Farms convenience store in Turners Falls and store workers were delighted when they discovered they'd sold a winning ticket.

Assistant manager Kristen Kanehl said: "It was pretty awesome!  I’m really excited."

Cumberland Farms will receive a $10,000 retailer's bonus for selling the winning ticket. Kanehl said store employees would receive a share of the money.
