Way to go!

Walter Murphy, of Dorchester, won the seven-figure payday playing the “$2,000,000 50X Cashword” $10 scratch-off game. It’s the only lottery game he plays, and he always buys his tickets from the same store.

Murphy, a retired Boston firefighter, chose to take the lump sum payment of $650,000 (before taxes).

The grandfather of 12 with two more on the way said he plans to spend his winnings on them.

Murphy purchased the ticket at J&J Mini Mart at 131 W. Broadway in South Boston. The store will get a $10,000 bonus for the sale.
