(WCVB5.COM) REVERE, Mass. – A Revere man who needed change so he could pay for his lunch bought a lottery scratch ticket and won $10 million.

Richard Noll went into Lanzilli Groceria in East Boston to break a $100 bill so he could pay for his lunch at a nearby sandwich shop.

He bought two $20 Platinum Millions instant tickets, one of which revealed his $10 million prize.

Noll and his wife, Lisa, claimed the prize Tuesday. He chose the cash option and received a one-time payment of $6,500,000, less taxes.

Noll plans on using his winnings to buy a house, make some investments and take his granddaughter to Disney World.
Lanzilli Groceria will receive a $50,000 bonus for its sale.

Noll is the third $10 million Platinum Millions prize winner since the instant game was launched in 2013.

There are two additional $10 million prizes and 16 $1 million prizes remaining in the game.
