Massachusetts co-workers split $1 million prize

Francois Marrec, Jr.

Drawing Date: 8/18/2015

September 1, 2015 - Francois Marrec, Jr. of Haverhill, Mass., and four of his co-workers are splitting a $1 million Mega Millions prize won after one of their number combinations matched the first five numbers drawn in the multi-state game’s drawing held Tuesday, August 18, 2015.

Marrec claimed the $1 million prize (less taxes) on behalf of the group on Tuesday, September 1, at the Massachusetts State Lottery’s Braintree headquarters.  Their winning numbers (02-07-33-39-53) were originally chosen by a former co-worker. The group plans on rewarding her with a portion of their winnings and intends to ask her to choose a new set of numbers as they plan on retiring this combination.

The winning ticket was purchased at Tedeschi Food Shops, 93 Lafayette Square in Haverhill.  The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for its sale.

This is the second $1 million Mega Millions prize claimed in Massachusetts this year.
