Pittsfield Man Hit Lottery for 1-Million Bucks Just Like He Did 20-Years Earlier
If you know Michael Rocca of Pittsfield you might want to rub his head (ask him first) before you purchase your next lottery ticket. Last week Rocca scratched a 1-million- dollar ticket in the State's $4,000,000 Instant Jackpot game that he bought at Kirk's Variety and Hobby Store in Pittsfield.
Obviously, Rocca has not walked under any ladders or had a black cat cross his path because just over 20 years ago he hit for a 1-million dollar jackpot in the $1,000,000 Draw instant ticket game according to live959.com. Rocca took that jackpot in annual instalments over 20-years. His last check was last May. With his latest jackpot win Rocco decided to take the wheel barrel full of cash in one lump sum of $650,000.
For their part in selling the 1-million dollar winning ticket, the owner of Kirk's Variety and Hobby Shop on Tyler Street in Pittsfield will pocket $10,000.
if your feeling lucky and playing for the big bucks tonight with Powerball, the jackpot is $20,000,000 with a 1-time cash buyout at $13,800,000. The Powerball drawing is tonight. If Mega Millions is your game the jackpot for Friday's drawing is also $20,000,000. If you win and take the payout you would also be 13,800,000 richer.
