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.
