NEW BEDFORD, MASS. (WHDH) - A New Bedford man is attributing his recent $1 million Massachusetts State Lottery win to guidance from a dead relative

Damon Greene said he received guidance from his deceased uncle before selecting the winning “High Voltage Cash” instant ticket from bin #12 at the Cumberland Farms on Rockdale Avenue.

He chose the cash option for his prize and received payment of $650,000 (before taxes).  Greene plans to buy a new house with his winnings.

The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for its sale of this ticket.
