Tina Maritano Wins “Pinball Wizard XVIII” Top Prize
Torrington Newlywed Wins $100,000 Lottery Prize—Instantly!
May 08, 2013 -- Last Saturday, newlywed Tina Maritano of Torrington stopped for gas while out enjoying a beautiful, sunny day with her family.  Tina’s husband, Dominic, pumped the gas while she went inside to pay.

“I asked the clerk for a $10 scratch ticket—any ticket—and he gave me a ‘Pinball Wizard,’” Maritano said.  “I got back to the car and before we left, I scratched the ticket.  We both started crying when we saw I won $100,000.”

Yesterday, Maritano claimed her prize check at Lottery headquarters for $68,303 (value after taxes) with her dad and Dominic by her side.  “We’re still kind of in shock,” Maritano told Lottery officials.  “We just got married 7 months ago.  This will help pay off my student loans, put a down payment on a house…and finally take a honeymoon!”

Tickets for the newest edition of “Pinball Wizard XVIII” went on sale April 15.  Maritano’s $100,000 top prize is the first of eight in the game to be claimed.

For selling Maritano her top prize winning Pinball Wizard XVIII ticket, Pineridge Shell, located at 1036 E. Main Street in Torrington, will receive a $1,000 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
