Massachusetts man is lucky for two lifetimes

October 24, 2014, 10:29 pm ET

Luck struck twice for a Norwood, Massachusetts, man who found out his lottery ticket had the winning numbers in this week's Lucky For Life drawing — then realized, minutes later, that he had another ticket with the same number.

Kenneth J. Stokes received a call from a Massachusetts State Lottery representative Monday notifying him that his Lucky for Life season ticket had won him a prize of $25,000 a year for life, according to a statement by the lottery.

After the call, Stokes realized that he had another Lucky for Life season ticket that his family had bought him — which, as it turned out, had the same lucky numbers, which were based on several family birthdays.

Euro Millions

EuroMillions jackpot at record levels, capped at €190 million

October 23, 2014, 9:46 am ET

By Todd Northrop

For players of Europe's EuroMillions multi-country lottery game, Friday's drawing is the start of a special capped drawing feature that could inflate the second prize level to extraordinary levels.

The €190 million (US$240.4 million) jackpot is the accumulation of 6 draws without a top prize winner since the October 3 "super draw" of €100 million.

Once the Euro Millions jackpot reaches the €190 million point, it becomes the first of up to two capped drawings.  All of the money that normally would have been placed into the jackpot above the €190 million level rolls down into the second prizes.

Pennsylvania Lottery

Pennsylvania House passes bill giving Lottery odds and prize flexibility

October 22, 2014, 8:09 am ET

The Pennsylvania House has voted 195-1 to send to Gov. Tom Corbett a bill that Pennsylvania Lottery officials say will give them more flexibility in setting player odds and prizes, increasing sales in the long run.

But that flexibility is paired in the bill with a new requirement that the General Assembly have final approval over any Lottery plans to add new game categories like Keno or Internet-based games.

The latter clause, added by the state Senate earlier this fall, was a response to concerns that adding either type of new game would dramatically increase the number of daily Lottery drawings, and outlets for game play.
