Million Dollar Scratch Ticket Sold at Berkshire County Mobile Station


The list of Berkshire County residents looking to be wealthier (or at least comfortably well off) is at least one name shorter thanks to a lucky purchase recently made at a Mobil gas station last Monday.

Now I realize a million dollars ain’t almost enough the money to buy the palatial estate, the Lear private jet to take you to exotic destinations all over the world, or the gold-plated swimming pool. Especially nowadays. Isn’t that a depressing thought? Just knowing that a million dollars can’t buy what it was worth before?

Anyway, a cool million is still a lot of money, even after taxes (that would leave $650,000), so I’m very happy (and a little jealous, can’t lie) for this lucky individual who purchased a “$4,000,000 Money Bags” scratch off ticket at a Mobil gas station in the town of Adams on Monday.

And this person was not alone. According to the Massachusetts State Lottery, someone in North Adams won $10,000 with a Cashword scratch ticket purchased at the West Package Store.

Another lucky winner won $5,000 on Monday with a scratch ticket purchased at Johnnie’s Super Store on Peck’s Road in Pittsfield. What’s my point to all of this? Well, I guess I don’t. Other than that: I constantly complain about never winning, but the truth is I am not playing. And you know what that saying goes…

So until I make the choice to start playing the lottery, I will continue to wish good luck to those who DO to play. Sincerely. The mass lottery has more than enough for everyone.
