A Scituate man has a million reasons to smile after a lottery win.

Burke chose to receive a one-time cash payment of $650,000, before taxes, and says he plans to use part of his winnings towards the purchase of a new car.

Shrewsbury Gas & Market at 22 Maple Ave. in Shrewsbury will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
