Woman wins $1m lottery jackpot twice in 10 weeks

A woman has won a $1m prize on the lottery for the second time in 10 weeks.

Massachusetts State Lottery revealed Christine Wilson was the lucky ticket holder who hit the jackpot twice.

Ms Wilson, of Attleborough, Massachusetts, won her most recent prize playing the “100X Cash” $10 instant ticket game.

Back in February, she claimed the first $1m (£796,000) prize in the “Lifetime Millions” $50 (£40) instant ticket game.

On both occasions, she opted to receive her prize in the form of a one-time payment of $650,000 (£518,000).

When she won her first prize, Ms Wilson said that she planned to use some of her winnings to buy a new car.

She plans to put this latest windfall into savings.

Ms Wilson bought her most recent ticket at Family Food Mart in the US town of Mansfield and the shop will receive a $10,000 (£7,900) bonus for its sale of the ticket, according to the Massachusetts State Lottery.

She bought her first $1m winning ticket at Dubs’s Discount Liquors in the same town.
