Plumber wins new lottery prize — $1,000 a day for life

The Associated Press

BOSTON — A 39-year-old Hanover, Mass., plumber has won the $1,000-a-day-for-life lottery prize.

Massachusetts State Lottery officials say Bruce Campbell picked numbers 1, 2, 6, 10, 19 and 15 to net the first grand prize in the new Lucky for Life game.

The first drawing for the game, played in all six states in New England, was March 8 in Hartford, Conn.

Campbell bought the ticket at Myette’s Country Store in Hanover, which gets $50,000 for selling the winning ticket.

Lottery officials say Campbell attended high school with the store’s owner. They rode to lottery headquarters Tuesday in the same limousine for a check presentation.

Officials report that Campbell said he’ll splurge on a Cadillac and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle and also make some investments.
