Marblehead man wins big lottery prize

Humberto Bernabe of Marblehead won a prize of $25,000 a year for life in the multi-state Lucky for Life game after the first five numbers on his ticket matched those selected in the drawing Nov. 22.

Bernabe, whose winning numbers were ones that he’s been playing in multiple games over the last two-and-a-half years, claimed his prize Dec. 1 at Massachusetts State Lottery headquarters in Dorchester.

He chose the cash option on his prize and received a one-time payment of $390,000 (before taxes). He plans on putting his winnings toward buying a house, according to the Lottery.

He purchased his winning ticket at Stop & Shop in Swampscott, which will receive a $5,000 bonus for its sale of the ticket.
