First “Lucky for Life” Top Prize Winner Claims $1,000 a Day for Life Prize
Bruce Campbell, a 39 year-old plumber from Hanover, Massachusetts was the first “Lucky” top prize winner in the new “Lucky for Life
” regional game on March 15, 2012.
The winning Lucky for Life numbers on that date were 1 - 2 - 6 - 10 - 19 and the Lucky Ball was 15.
Across New England, 166,905 winning tickets were purchased for the Lucky for Life drawing on March 15. Connecticut alone sold 51,502 winning tickets on that date, with prizes ranging from $2 up to $2,000 in value.
Campbell, who selected his own numbers from birthdays, including his own, and an old hockey number, will be paid $1,000 a day for the rest of his life for his lucky match. While the game’s top prize is guaranteed for a minimum of 20 years, Campbell will be paid out for the duration of his lifetime.
When asked if he had big plans for his winnings, Campbell said he will invest for the future. He did reveal that he and his longtime girlfriend Dawn will be splurging on a Cadillac and a new Harley motorcycle, but beyond that he “will remain the same hard-working blue collar guy that he’s always been.”
Tickets cost $2 and are sold in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. CT Lottery officials encourage winners to sign their tickets immediately to establish ownership. Winning tickets must be redeemed in the same state in which they were purchased.
