    A Revere, Massachusetts, man who bought two lottery tickets at a Boston grocery shop to break a $100 bill so he could buy lunch ended up winning $10 million.

    Lottery officials announced Thursday that Richard Noll and his wife claimed the prize at lottery headquarters in Braintree earlier this week. He chose a one-time payment of $6.5 million after taxes.

    Noll says he needed to break a $100 bill to get lunch at a sandwich shop and bought two $20 "Platinum Millions" instant tickets at Lanzilli Groceria in East Boston. The shop gets a $50,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

    Noll says he wants to buy a house, make some investments and take his granddaughter to Walt Disney World.

    He's the third $10 million winner in the "Platinum Millions" game.
