Maxwell Clarke of Cambridge is celebrating after winning a $100,000 top prize with Instant Crossword Tripler.
Maxwell, a father of three and grandfather of eight, said he’s a weekly lottery player who enjoys playing Instant Crosswords, Lotto Max, and Lotto 6/49.
The 81-year-old said he was shocked to discover he won $100,000 after scanning his ticket at the store. “I thought it couldn’t be right, so I went to the clerk and sure enough the whole machine shut down. I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “I went home to tell my wife and I still don’t think she believes me,” he laughed.
Maxwell said he hasn’t decided what his plans are yet. “I need to think about it still – this feels phenomenal,” he concluded.
The winning ticket was purchased at Hasty Market on Saginaw Parkway in Cambridge.
