Regular routine pays off for lucky New Jersey player

Marianna Lauro

Drawing Date: 1/30/2015

February 27, 2015 - Ten Powerball tickets and ten Mega Millions tickets - purchased once a week, from whichever New Jersey Lottery retailer is most convenient. That’s the regular lottery routine of Marianna Lauro, and it paid off big-time when she won $1 million on a Mega Millions ticket purchased for the January 30 drawing. Among her plans for the winnings are college funds for her two grandsons.

Lauro’s ticket correctly matched the first five numbers drawn on January 30 – 18, 31, 39, 45 and 55, just missing the Mega Ball number (6).

The lucky retailer for the winning ticket was Pat’s Corner Café & Deli, 242 Boulevard, Kenilworth, in Union County, N.J.
