First time Play, Big Time Win
TRENTON (Dec. 7, 2018) – Victor F., a New York resident, works in landscaping in New Jersey. Though he is not a lottery player, when he stopped by a store in New Jersey to pick up some water, he decided to take a chance and buy a couple of scratch-off lottery tickets. He had seen the $5,000 Win For Life ticket in stores before, so he decided to take a chance on that game and bought a $3.00 scratch-off ticket along with it.
Since he had never played before, Victor decided to wait until he had gotten to work to find out if he had won anything on either of his tickets. When he scratched-off the tickets, he consulted with his friend to determine if either one was a winner of a prize. He was astonished when his friend told him, not only had he won, but he won BIG! Victor had won the Win For Life $5,000 A Month For Life jackpot. He immediately call his sister Maria, who didn’t believe him when he told her he had won a lottery jackpot. Happy she was to realize he actually was a lottery jackpot winner! She joined him at Lottery Headquarters in Lawrenceville when he came in to file his claim.
Victor said he didn’t have any definite plans yet for his winnings, but he is considering using some of the money to take a trip and investing the other. Victor also stated that knowing he has been lucky playing the lottery, he plan to continue playing into the future.
The lucky retailer that sold the winning ticket is K.N.T. Food Store, 24 W. Hudson Ave., Englewood in Bergen County.
