Arlington Man Wins Big on Scratch Ticket

See how much he'll be getting every week for the rest of his life.

Arlington’s James P. Gallant will receive $1,000 a week for the rest of his life.

Gallant recently claimed the 10th and final grand prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “$1,000 A Week For Life” instant game, according to an announcement on the lottery’s website.

There is a minimum 20-year guarantee on the prize, which means it’s worth at least $1,040,000, less taxes.

Gallant told the lottery he plans to take a vacation someplace warm with the winnings from the $2 scratch ticket.

Gallant’s father bought him the ticket at Roche Bros #115 in West Roxbury. The store will receive a $10,400 commission on the sale.

Gallant is Arlington’s second big lottery winner in the last few months. In December, 54-year-old Rosa DeLeon split a $33 million lump sum prize ($23 million after taxes) with one of her Costco co-workers.
