Never one to spend a lot of money on the Massachusetts Lottery, I sometimes wonder what I would do if I were to win a big prize.

You often hear about ordinary folks who walk into a local convenience store as a pauper and walk out a millionaire. How wonderful for them.

Why doesn't that happen to me?

Oh yeah – you have to play to win. I don't play, at least not very often.

When I do decide to splurge and buy a lottery ticket, it's always a loser, or perhaps I'll win back what I invested and nothing more. That's almost considered a hit for me.

"There were also three $100,000 prizes sold Tuesday, each from the 'Mass Cash' game and each from the same Centerville Food Mart in Centerville," located on the South Side of Barnstable, according to MassLive.
