Michael Lech of Easthampton claimed a massive $100,000 Mass Cash prize narrowly avoiding its expiration with less than three weeks to spare. The life-changing win stems from the January 8 2023 Mass Cash drawing, a popular lottery game known for its enticing rewards.
Lech who works as a mechanic made his timely claim on Wednesday December 20 at the Massachusetts State Lottery’s West Springfield claim center. His winning numbers – 1, 5, 6, 13, and 29 – hold a sentimental value as they were chosen based on the birthdays of his family members adding a personal touch to his victory.
The winning ticket was purchased at a local 7-Eleven on 97 Union St. in Easthampton, a spot that’s now buzzing with excitement. The store itself has been rewarded with a $1,000 bonus for selling the lucky ticket celebrating alongside Lech’s big win.
