Maine State Lottery News:


$250,000 lottery scratch ticket sold in Presque Isle

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Raylene Shaw is considering changing the name of her store from “Ray's Corner Variety” to “Mr. Lucky's.”

For the second time in three years, the Academy Street store has sold a Maine State Lottery ticket worth a sizable chunk of change.

Earlier this week, a male customer bought a $10 instant scratch ticket that turned out to be worth $250,000.

The man, whose name Shaw knows, wants to remain anonymous for now.

His big win is nothing new to store employees. Back in August 2007, another male customer bought a winning Megabucks lottery ticket worth $9.875 million at the store. That winner has never come forward.

“It really is unbelievable,” Shaw said Friday. “The ticket was a $10 ‘In The Money’ scratch ticket. We found out that he had won the cash on Tuesday, but the ticket was purchased last week.”

The Maine State Lottery Web site indicates that $250,000 is the maximum amount of money a player can win on that instant ticket.

According to Shaw, ticket sales at the store have skyrocketed since they sold the 2007 winning lottery ticket.

“We do a lot of ticket sales for such a small store,” she acknowledged. “It is great for business.”

Shaw used that money to make improvements to the store. She said Friday that she will use the latest winnings to help expand the store.

As for the ticket holder, Shaw said he told store employees he plans to make some home improvements and travel now that he is $250,000 richer.
