Hanover Plumber Wins $1,000 Per Day For Life In New Lottery Game

BOSTON (CBS) – A 39-year-old Hanover man is the first grand prize winner of the new “Lucky for Life” lottery drawing.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Bernice Corpuz reports.

Bruce Campbell, a plumber, was awarded a ceremonial check for $1,000 per day for life on Tuesday.

Campbell bought the ticket at Myette’s Country Store in Hanover last week. It matched all six numbers drawn (1-2-6-10-19, Lucky Ball 15).

Campbell didn’t realize he won until the store owners called him to check.

“I got a message from Tracy to check the numbers, that she had sold the winning ticket. So, I checked my numbers and I called Kevin, and Kevin told me that I won,” said Campbell.

Campbell said that he plans to keep his job, invest most of his money, and purchase a new Cadillac and maybe a motorcycle, too.

Two other people matched five numbers and won $25,000.

The game is the first to be played in all six New England states. Tickets cost $2 each, and drawings are held every Monday and Thursday.

The grand prize of $1,000 per day is guaranteed for a minimum of 20 years and is paid out for the length of the winner’s lifetime.

After taxes, the grand prize equates to more than $250,000 per year in winnings.

    Wow, good for him. I played this new lottery game twice already & didn’t even match 1 number. Some people are lucky, some aren’t.

    Also… congrats to Myette’s Country Store for selling that ticket. I know that place!

    JUST A COMMENT. IF THEY ADVERTISE 1,000 A DAY FOR LIFE, YOU SHOULD GET THE WHOLE SUM…THIS IS FALSE ADVERTISING. I,M SURPRISED THEY HAVE NOT BEEN SUED YET

  7. dan says:

    RAISE IT TO INCLUDE THE TAXES….THE STATE IS MAKING OUT LIKE A BANDIT AT OUR EXPENSE……HELLO..PEOPLE DO NOT GET THIS!!!!!

      The Lottery is a voluntary game (voluntary tax), no one forces anyone to participate. If people choose to play and take that risk then good for the state and those who benefit from it. I would rather the state raise funds through this voluntary source than raise our taxes even more to gain funding that’s needed elsewhere.

      dan,
      The plumbers healthcare premiums just tripled, prescriptions maxxed, office visits increased, taxes EACH day for the rest of his life, alimony payments, The state does win EVERYDAY.
      Run as fast as you can from this state before auntee and uncle insist on a cost of living raise.

    With so many people struggling financially I wonder if stories of people winning lotteries is good or bad for them. You sure don’t want people thinking that winning the lottery is their answer.
