Lottery Customer is Twice Lucky at Courtesy Mobil Greenwich
August 31, 2012 --
Lottery customer Joe Lanoce has been twice lucky at his hometown gas station, Courtesy Mobil Greenwich, located at 1129 E. Putnam Avenue in Riverside. For the second time in as many months, Lanoce won a significant prize from instant game tickets purchased at Courtesy Mobil Greenwich—a $10,000 prize playing “$1,000,000 Jackpot
,” and most recently a $25,000 prize playing “$200,000 High Stakes Casino
“I’ve been very lucky; I bought both winning tickets at the same place,” Lanoce told Lottery officials. “This time, if it wasn’t for my wife I wouldn’t have been shopping there at all last night—she told me we needed to get milk,” said Lanoce with a laugh.
Lanoce arrived at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill yesterday where he accepted another prize check, this time for $17,081 (value after taxes). “Like the last lottery prize that I won, the money will go toward my daughter’s continuing college education,” Lanoce said.
For selling Lanoce his $25,000 prize winning ticket, Courtesy Mobil Greenwich, a lottery retailer since 2004, will receive a $250 bonus from the CT Lottery.
