A Fabius highway worker is $1 million richer today after he hit the Mega Millions Lottery, despite his windfall he plans to keep working.
53 year old Edwin Bobbette Jr. bought his winning Mega Millions ticket at the Pompey Mall back in August.
The State Lottery says Bobbette paid an extra $1 per game for the Megaplier option, which allows players to multiply their prizes by two, three or four times the original prize amount, is the winner.
By using the Megaplier option, Bobbette turned his $250,000 check into $1 million prize. After taxes he will recieve a lump sum of $661,800.
The lifelong Fabius resident said he has played the same numbers for the last 10 years.
Previously, the most he ever won was $701 in January.
“I play it all the time,” Bobbette said. “Everybody says I’m nuts because I’m wasting my money, but here I am."
