Cowan is an art dealer. He is planning on taking a vacation and investing in his retirement.
Jeremy Stephenson from Arab, Ala. And Mary Gilmore of Rockland claimed their prizes Thursday.
Gilmore, who works at a mortgage loan officer, bought two quick picks. She gave one to her boss and kept one for her self.
Gilmore plans to use the money to pay off her own mortgage and her children’s student loans.
Stephenson is working in Boston as a software consultant. He is planning on paying bills and helping his mother out with his winnings.
All four are taking the lump-sum payment of about $700,000.
