PITTSFIELD, MASS. (WHDH) - A Pittsfield man recently won a $1 million prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “$4,000,000 Instant Jackpot” instant ticket game — the second time he has won a $1 million prize, having won in May of 2000 via the “$1,000,000 Draw” instant ticket game.
Michael Rocca chose the cash option for his prize and received a one-time payment of $650,000 (before taxes). He received the final annuity payment from his first $1 million prize in May of 2020.
His winning ticket was purchased at the Kirk’s Variety and Hobby Store on Tyler Street in Pittsfield. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for its sale.
