Lottery Ponders Where To Display Jackpot-Printing Machine

Aug 31, 2017

Massachusetts State Lottery officials are racking their brains about where they should put the machine that printed a $758 million jackpot ticket.

Some state officials have suggested the machine be displayed in a place of prominence, like the Massachusetts State House.

"We're still evaluating what the best way to preserve this piece of history, and possibly giving the opportunity to see it in person," said Lottery spokesman Christian Teja.

The machine was removed from a Chicopee gas station for routine maintenance a few days after it printed the ticket.

The jackpot was largest for a single winner ever in the United States. On Facebook, the machine already has a name — #LuckyTheMachine.
