SCRATCH GAMES WINNER!
Brandon Lane and Stephanie Anastasio hold their $30,000 '30 Grand' check
Co-workers’ ‘Pay it Forward’ Mentality Repays as $30,000 Lottery Win
April 28, 2017 -- Co-workers Brandon Lane and Stephanie Anastasio try to “pay it forward” whenever they can. Whether it’s helping out a friend or assisting a complete stranger, the pair were certainly surprised to see their good deeds come full circle with a $30,000 lottery top prize!

Last week, the duo stopped by a gas station on their way home and Lane purchased a “30 Grand” instant ticket. It wasn’t until a couple hours later that he gave it to Anastasio to play. “I paid for it, she scratched it,” Lane said with a huge smile. “I kept telling her, ‘Play it! It could be $30,000!’”

Anastasio was doubtful but little did she know that a top prize was just play away. “She started yelling and [nudging] me. I said, ‘No it’s not! No way!’” Lane laughed. “We were just talking about our payments we needed to make!” Anastasio told lottery officials.

The co-workers plan to save their winnings for the future by putting it into a trust. As they received their check, Lane and Anastasio’s faces lit up with complete joy, “This doesn’t feel real right now!”

For selling the winning ticket, Eagle Mini Mart II Inc. located on 95 Washington Avenue in North Haven, will receive a $300 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
