Lucky the lottery terminal on display at Treasurer Goldberg’s office


CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP)- “Lucky,” the famous lottery terminal that printed Mavis Wanczyk’s record-setting $758 million Powerball ticket, has made a stop at the Treasurer’s Office at the State House.

The machine is on display for visitors to take pictures with and possibly take home some good luck. Lucky previously resided at Pride Market on Montgomery Street in Chicopee, the gas station where 53-year-old Wanczyk purchased the winning ticket. It was the largest jackpot prize ever won a single ticket in U.S. Lottery history.

A portion of money spent on lottery sales goes back to cities and towns to help them pay for services like public safety and parks.

“It’s about getting money back to the communities so that they can address needs that they have that may not necessarily they have the extra money to pay for,” Goldberg said.

Lucky will be on display in the treasurer’s office from 2 p.m. Thursday to 12 p.m. Monday.
