In February, Wildes passed the Cigaret Shopper story in Bangor, despite not being a smoker, and stopped on a whim to buy a lottery ticket. He played the $50 million Cash Blowout game-and his payback was seven-figures.According to a press release, Wildes will be getting an after-withholding check of more than $700,000. Wildes said, "I feel great and secure."
In February, the Maine Lottery had nearly $2 million worth of big winners, and a total winner take of slightly more than $16 million.
A $2 million lottery ticket was sold recently at the Publix location in Kingsland. The winner claimed the prize Thursday.
The winning ticket was purchased at the Publix located at 1601 Hwy. 40 East. The $2 million ticket was from the Georgia Lottery's Cash Explosion scratcher, which offers players a chance to win top prizes of $2 million, second prizes of $50,000 and other prizes.
