A Massachusetts man is now $1 million richer thanks to ordering a pie from Uno Pizzeria & Grill at the Holyoke Mall.
According to MassLive, Thomas Napiorkowski decided to buy a Diamond Millions instant ticket from the Mass Lottery vending machine at the Uno location in Holyoke, Massachusetts, while picking up his pizza to go. The ticket turned out to be a $1 million winner.
It’s pretty good luck for Uno as well: The restaurant will receive a bonus worth $10,000 for selling the ticket, according to lottery officials.
Napiorkowski told the lottery he plans to use part of his winnings to buy a car for his wife.
Uno Pizzeria & Grill touted Napiorkowski’s big haul with a Facebook post, noting, “We cannot guarantee that every Uno pizza comes with $1M, but we can give you an extra on us. BOGO pizza on all takeout orders this weekend!”
