Armand Paganelli, who owns a lotto retailer in the heart of the Bronx, is smiling from ear to ear and celebrating his 16th lotto win.
It’s the sixteenth time Anmand has won a prize on the lottery. As he’s a retailer in the area, he likes to buy lottery tickets. Whether it’s the convenience of purchasing the lotto tickets or the fact that seeing the huge jackpots in front of him all day, Armand is winning.
Since 2013 to 2014, he has won a staggering $625,000 in lotto wins. Every ticket were purchased at the drugstore that he co-owns with his brothers. These lucky tickets have scooped lotto prizes between £250,000 and £25,000.
Armand said that it’s not all about luck, working in the lottery selling business he is able to buy huge volumes of tickets. “They’re here and I like to play,” he said, with a glance at the lottery machine that is standing in his store.
Even though Armand’s wife cashed in the lotto wins, Armand said that she is in fact against playing the lottery.
“She has never bought a lottery ticket in her life… she’s completely against it. I just ask her to cash them for me,” he said.
If you’re thinking that something’s not adding up here, then we would like to point out that it is in fact perfectly legal for Mr Paganelli to buy lotto tickets from his own store.
The biggest win Armand experienced was a £250,000 jackpot win was from a US Mega Millions ticket, which contributed towards the family’s new luxury home in the New York suburb of Westchester. They also own several cars and a jet ski. Mrs Paganelli says that she has stopped keeping track of her husband’s lottery wins.
Mr and Mrs Paganelli join the ranks of lottery store retail winners in Virginia, who won $3 million of a Mega Millions ticket.
