Mark Paré of Manchester Wins $25,000 A Year for Life


CONCORD, N.H. – Mark Paré of Manchester won $25,000 a year for life after purchasing a winning Lucky For Life ticket at Bunny’s Superette in Manchester for the October 19 drawing. Paré claimed his prize this week and opted to take the one-time cash payment of $390,000 (before taxes) rather than the annuity payment of $25,000 per year for life with a minimum payment over 20 years (before taxes). 

The New Hampshire Lottery is also waiting to meet another Lucky For Life winner, who is also set to receive the $25,000 a year for life prize, after a lucky player purchased a winning Lucky For Life ticket at Spitbrook Market on Spit Brook Road in Nashua for the drawing on Monday, September 29. 

“It is amazing to have two Lucky For Life winners less than one month apart, with both tickets worth $25,000 a year for life,” said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director, New Hampshire Lottery. “Lucky For Life continues to become more and more popular with our players, offering the chance to win a grand prize of $1,000 a day for life. We congratulate Mark and we cannot wait to meet our next winner. Check your tickets if you purchased a Lucky For Life ticket at the Spitbrook Market in Nashua – you may be holding a winner!” 

As the top-selling New Hampshire Lottery retailer, Bunny’s Superette continues to also be one of the New Hampshire Lottery’s winningest retailers. In August 2013, a Manchester resident won Lucky For Life’s top prize of $1,000 a day for life after purchasing his winning ticket from Bunny’s Superette. 

This past week has been big for winning in New Hampshire. In addition to the Lucky For Life winners, a winning $30,000 Tri-State Megabucks ticket was sold at Cumberland Farms on East Broadway in Derry and a $50,000 winning Powerball ticket was sold at Union Street Market on Union Street in Manchester for drawings on Saturday, October 17. 

A lucky player won $20,000 playing KENO 603 at Backyard Brewery on South Mammoth Road in Manchester on Sunday, October 25. On Sunday, October 18, a lucky KENO 603 player won $10,000 at Friendly Reds on Haverhill Road in Windham. 

Lucky For Life tickets cost $2 each. Prizes include winning up to $1,000 a day for life, $25,000 a year for life, or cash prizes ranging from $3 to $5,000. Drawings are held Mondays and Thursdays at 10:38 PM.
