Thomas Ensko

Drawing Date: 6/11/2024

June 12, 2024 - Thomas Ensko of Blackstone, Mass., is the winner of a $1 million Mega Millions® prize on a ticket he purchased for the multi-state game’s drawing held Tuesday, June 11.

Ensko, who claimed his prize Wednesday, June 12 at Massachusetts State Lottery headquarters in Dorchester, received a one-time payment of $1,000,000 (before taxes). Ensko claimed his prize accompanied by his wife, who is no stranger to winning the Lottery as she won $1 million on an instant ticket over 20 years ago.

“I’ve been playing the same numbers for the last twenty years,” said Ensko. He said he plays these numbers as they have a lot of similarities to his birthday. He said he plans on helping his children and grandchildren with the winnings.

He purchased his winning ticket at Anderson’s Variety, 266 Blackstone St. in Blackstone. The store receives a $10,000 bonus for its sale of this ticket.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings take place every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. in Atlanta, Ga.
