Howard Rankin may not be the the luckiest person in the world, but he's certainly in the discussion.
The Framingham resident has won his second $1 million instant ticket prize in a 10-month span in latest edition of the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “100X The Cash” $10 instant game.
Rankin once again chose the cash option on his prize and received a one-time payment of $650,000 (before tax withholdings).
Both of Rankin's lucky tickets were purchased at the Stop & Shop located at 19 Temple St. in Framingham. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for its sale.
Earlier this year, Jane Hoyt of Lynn claimed her second $1 million instant prize in a seven-month span.
