Randolph Shaw's Sells 11 Winning Mass Cash Tickets


RANDOLPH (WBZ-AM) -- Sunday night's Mass Cash drawing produced a dozen $100,000 winning tickets--and 11 of them were sold at the same Shaw's Supermarket in Randolph.

Lottery officials aren't sure who bought the winning tickets, though they said it was most likely the same person filling out multiple tickets with the same number.

Christian Teja, Communications Director at the Massachusetts Lottery, told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Ben Parker it's not uncommon for people to play the same number multiple times and win.

"There have been, over the last ten years, ten winners from the same location," he said. "Most cases, when there are multiple tickets sold from one location, it does tend to be one person who purchases these tickets ... and hey, if you get ten, it makes a nice round number, you get a million."

Teja said that, in some cases, someone who wins on multiple tickets may not claim all of those tickets themselves.

"A lottery ticket is a bare instrument, so if they do want to give it to a relative as a gift, when the person comes to claim it, the person in possession of the ticket is the owner of the ticket," he said. 

As for the supermarket, selling 11 winning tickets scores them an $11,000 bonus. 

A 12th winning Mass Cash ticket was sold at a convenience store in Groton.
