Two people from western Massachusetts have won large prizes on two Mass. Lottery games.

Mass. Lottery spokesperson Christina Teja said that Garrett Alibozek of Adams recently scratched off a $1 million prize in the agency's "200X" scratch ticket, which was purchased at O'Geary's Package Store in Adams.

Alibozek took the one-time payment of $650,000, less tax withholding. He will reportedly use some of his winnings to buy a new truck.

However, Alibozek wasn't the only one to recently hit it big.

Teja added that William Patrick of Chicopee has claimed a prize of $25,000 a year for life after the first five numbers of his "Lucky for Life" Quic-Pic ticket matched those pulled in March 12 drawing. That ticket was purchased at Orchard Variety in Indian Orchard.

Patrick took the one-time cash payment of $390,000, less tax withholding.

Both stores that sold the winning tickets will receive a bonus from the Lottery.
