Zachary Pearson, 19 from Massachusetts has been given the best present he could have received: a $1,000 a week lottery prize that keeps on giving. Pearson was given lottery tickets for Christmas, and with the small winnings he received from these, he used the money to purchase more tickets which went on to land him the grand prize! The Massachusett's Lottery's "$1,000 a week for Life" ticket was purchased at Market Place, the common which is located at 6 Moulton St. In Barre. He had the option of receiving the prize as a lump sum of $800,000, however he decided that a $1,000 a week for the next 20 years would be better. A Social Security Administration calculator shows that the average male of Pearson's age has a life expectancy of 82 year old, therefore theoretically he will collect a whopping $3.3 million over his lifetime. In the future he plans to purchase a new car, as well as paying for his college tuition.
