Methuen’s Jason Williams better be prepared to meet a whole lot of “long-lost cousins.”

The Merrimack Valley resident claimed his second $1 Million Massachusetts State Lottery prize in four months Tuesday, netting a lump-sum payment of $650,000 (less taxes).

Williams hit it big on a $30 “200X” scratch ticket purchased at the Howe Street Superette, 163 Howe St., in Methuen. The convenience store will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

In January, Williams enjoyed another windfall after purchasing a $30 “Ultimate Millions” instant win ticket at Mobil Mart, 789 South Main St. in Haverhill.
