Dewitt bought a $10 lottery scratch game in Massachusetts called 4,000,000 Diamonds.

He settled on paying $2,600,000 before taxes.

According to the Massachusetts Lottery, the winner plans to use part of the prize money to buy a new phone and car.

But Dewitt wasn’t the only winner.

Dewitt bought his winning ticket at a Cumberland Farms location in Brewster.

This store will receive a $40,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Dewitt is the most recent win in this $4,000,000 Diamonds instant game.

Another man, Jovon Garner, won the game’s first $4 million prize in May.

Garner told the Massachusetts Lottery that he played the game because he liked the design of the ticket.

He also took home a pre-tax lump sum of $2.6 million.

Garner also plans to use the money to buy a new car and put some of the funds into a new facility.

The Stoneham Stop & Shop that sold the winning ticket will also receive a $40,000 bonus.
