Framingham Man Wins $1 Million Lottery Prize Twice In 10 Months

FRAMINGHAM (CBS) — A Framingham man has won his second $1 million prize from the Massachusetts State Lottery in a 10-month span.

Howard Rankin claimed his first million on November 12 of last year, after playing the “$2,500,000 Holiday Bonus” game.

His second winning ticket–purchased at the same Temple Street Stop & Shop as the first–was on a “100X The Cash” game.

That store will get a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Both prizes were won on $10 instant tickets.

Rankin picked the cash option, as he did on the first ticket–taking a one-time lump sum of $650,000 before tax.

A Lynn woman won her second $1 million prize in a seven-month span earlier this year.
