A Martha’s Vineyard Man hit it big this week when he won $1 million in a Jaws-themed lottery game. 

Gecimar Silva, a longtime painter from Tisbury, claimed his prize at the Massachusetts Lottery headquarters in Dorchester Friday, opting to take the one-time lump sum payment of $650,000, according to the lottery. 

Mr. Silva has lived on the Island for 18 years and bought the Jaws ticket from Depot Market in Edgartown because it was a new scratch ticket and the movie was filmed on the Island. Mr. Silva told lottery officials he hasn’t gone on a vacation in 30 years and he plans to take a trip to Florida with his winnings.

The Edgartown store will get a $10,000 bonus for its sale of the ticket. 

The Jaws-themed instant scratch tickets went on sale in March, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the film. People who buy the tickets can also win a trip to the Island, and a chance to participate in a Jaws game show put on by the lottery.
