N.J. man wins $5K a month for life with lucky scratch-off lottery ticket

Robert Butts, of Rahway, won $1,060,00 with a lucky lottery scratch-off ticket.

A New Jersey man who bought three, $3 scratch-off lottery tickets wound up winning $5,000 a month for life with one of them.

Robert Butts, of Rahway, though, chose the cash option when he claimed his prize and received $1,060,000 before taxes were deducted, a New Jersey Lottery spokeswoman said Friday.

Butts bought the Win for Life Tickets at Rahway Mini Mart on West Grand Avenue in Rahway, scratched them off in the store immediately and hit the jackpot with the third ticket.

Butts told lottery officials his only immediate plan for the money was to purchase a new television. He expected to invest the rest after notifying his family. Butts said he usually plays scratch-off games and only buys tickets for draw games when the prizes get very large.

Though Butts purchased the tickets in mid-September and went to lottery headquarters shortly thereafter, officials announced his good fortune in a press release on Friday.

Of the 11,858,200 Win for Life tickets printed, three are worth $5,000 a month for life, according to lottery officials. Another top-prize winner was sold at Pied Piper Liquors on West Edgar Avenue in Linden. The third hasn’t been claimed.
