Joseph Lanoce Wins $10,000 Prize Playing “$1,000,000 Jackpot” Instant Game
Way to go, Joe! Riverside Resident Wins $10,000 Prize
June 07, 2012 -- Joe Lanoce of Riverside has always been hopeful to scan a winning CT Lottery instant ticket big enough to drive to CT Lottery headquarters, located in Rocky Hill,  to claim it.  “A friend of mine and I have an inside joke.  When we scan our tickets, we say, ‘Come on…Rocky Hill!’”  

The other day, Lanoce, getting right down to business—bought a “$1,000,000 Jackpot” ticket, scratched off the barcode area, and scanned it in a ticket checker.  “I thought I won $1,000.  When the clerk checked it for me, he told me it was actually worth $10,000.  That’s ten times better than a $1,000!” Lanoce told Lottery officials with a laugh.

Lanoce got his wish today—he came to CT Lottery headquarters to accept a prize check for $6,833 (value after taxes).  “This is going straight to my daughter’s continuing college education,” said Lanoce.

For selling Lanoce his $10,000 prize winning ticket, Courtesy Mobil, located at 1129 E. Putnam Avenue in Riverside, will receive a $100 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
