Newlyweds Win $15 Million on Lotto Ticket, Plan to Pay Off Debt, Buy Home

Two newlyweds won a whopping $15 million on a lottery ticket purchased at a store along Route 6 in Eastham, Massachusetts, over the weekend.

Stacy and David Foster, who tied the knot on May 1, will no longer be weighed down by student loans and can finally fulfill their desire to buy a house and a new truck at the start of their married life.

When the couple entered Tedeschi Food Shops, they initially selected a ticket from behind a closed register. The clerk told them to choose one from behind the next open register, so they did and that $30 Supreme Millions ticket ended up being the winner, the Daily Hampshire Gazette reported.

Stacy Foster chose a one-time payout of $9.75 million minus taxes, according to the Gazette.

Massachusetts State Lottery tweeted about the couple’s winnings.



“They were just at the right place at the right time,” Chester Cichaski, Stacy Foster's father, told the Gazette on Tuesday. Cichaski also admitted that he plays the daily lottery and Keno, though he usually does not buy scratch-offs. “It still kind of hasn’t sunk in,” he said.

The store that sold the ticket will also get $50,000.

The Fosters are the first $15 million winners of the $30 million Supreme Millions instant game, The Boston Globe reported. The Supreme Millions instant game, which was released on April 28, still has three other $15 million winning tickets out there. There are also 61 $1 million winning tickets to be claimed.

These are not the first lucky newlyweds to win big on a lottery ticket. Last year Steve and Wilma Durbin won a $20 million jackpot only two weeks after their wedding, The Telegraph reported. Durbin had been grocery shopping at a Kroger store in Illinois when he picked the winning numbers on the lottery ticket he decided to purchase. The newlyweds said they would “spend some, share some, and save some.”

“First I married Wilma, then I won the lottery; I feel like I hit the jackpot twice,” Steve Durbin told The Telegraph.
