I'm happy to report that, in Massachusetts at least, good luck and financial fortune continue to be a thing! Even though I'm not on that "financial fortune" list at present, I still happily congratulate those who are!

Seriously, cash windfalls are happening all over the Bay State and we're only a little over a month into 2024. Last year at this time, the two largest lottery prizes won in the state of Massachusetts were two $31 million Mega Millions jackpot prizes and that was just in January!

And by the way, those two $31 million jackpots are also the sixth-largest lottery prizes ever won in the history of the lottery in Massachusetts. Pretty SWEET! Think of the bills that could pay off!

We're now off and running in February and, according to the Mass Lottery's website, the city of Pittsfield just saw another $100,000 Mass Cash lottery winner! That means that all five numbers that the winner picked were drawn.

It was sold from a wine and spirits store on Elm Street in Pittsfield, George's Liquor Store! By the way, this all happened yesterday, Sunday, February 4th. Just think. What could you buy for less than $100,000?

You could buy a slightly used motor home or RV that comfortably sleeps four and travel the country! Or, heck, get a passport if you don't already have one and spend some time in Canada!

You don't need to be filthy rich to snag yourself a cool new sports car. There are plenty of options to choose from whether it's a Mazda MX-5 Miata, a 2022 Ford Mustang, a Chevy Camaro, or a Volkswagon Jetta ALL costing below $100K!

Or you could buy something that you've always wanted that wasn't HUGELY expensive just monetarily out of reach like a hot tub for you and your spouse and then donate the rest to your favorite charity or the growing number of homeless.

Or you could, like most of us probably if we won that kind of money, get yourself out of debt, pay off a student loan, or take the family on a once-in-a-lifetime vacation! The options are plentiful!

Sure, I could be bitter but hey, "you can't win if you don't play", right? And I don't buy them anymore so here's a hearty, heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS to the lucky winner (whoever that person may be)!
