The story follows John Butler, a Massachusetts man who won $100,000 in the Mass Cash lottery, thanks to his wife’s encouragement to search for an old ticket. Butler had bought the ticket last year but had forgotten about it until his wife saw a news story about an unclaimed prize 11 days away from expiration. After some searching, they found the ticket and claimed their winnings, which amounted to $71,000 after taxes. The couple plans to use the money for a vacation and home renovations. While his wife reminded him to find the ticket, Butler credits his late father for the win, as he always advised him to keep his tickets for a year just in case.
