50 People Win Massachusetts Lottery


Cha’ Ching!


Massachusetts ‘Mass Cash’ game had 50 winners this past week, the most winners ever recorded according to the state lottery agency.


For a dollar, players choose five numbers between 1 and 35 and mark the choice on a slip. Previously, the most people to have won the ‘Mass Cash’ game was 34. Massachusetts lottery official Christian Teja explained why there were so many winners this time. Teja says: “In this case, the winning numbers all appeared in a column on the betting slip, which may account for why there were so many winners.”


Usually the grand prize is $100,000, however according to their website when total prizes exceed a certain percentage of sales, the state agency uses a formula to determine the prize amounts, according to its website.


Each winner is said to be walking away with $48,000. A significant decrease from the expected amount of cash, however in today’s climate - I’m sure none of them are complaining about some free cash.


The ‘Mass Cash’ game has been around for a nearly 30-years, it was started in 1991.
