According to WGME, a Mainer recently cashed in a scratch ticket worth a million dollars!

The ticket, $50,000,000 CA$H RICHE$ instant ticket, was purchased from a convenience store in Kittery.

While that scratch ticket was the biggest winner in the state in December 2022, there were a number of other large lottery winners last month.  According to a representative from the Maine Lottery, there were 32 other cash prizes of $10,000 or more distributed for a monthly total of $2,583,249.

The total amount of money won by people playing the Maine Lottery in December was just shy of $24,000,000.  This includes everything from the million dollar scratch ticket winner, to $10,000 Powerball winners, to people winning just a few dollars off a Megabucks ticket.
