Couple Wins $15M Lotto Playing Same Number for 20 Years

Apr 27, 2011
north york couple win 15 million

A lucky married couple from North York in the State of New York won $15,347,907 from Lotto 6/49 after playing the same numbers each week for the past 30 years.

Despite looking as happy as if told the world will end in 10 minutes when stuck in traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge, the couple said they are smiling inside. Mama Mia! If they are smiling inside, they deserve an Oscar for Best Performance because I’ve seen a deer’s expression in the headlights one time, right before my new Mini Truck vaporized it, and the deer looked happier. I was on the way home to play a special tournament at Millionaire Casino, an excellent establishment.

The family has a ritual, every Sunday morning; they wake up and practice smiling. That’s a joke. Relax. Aye?!?

So, as I was saying, every Sunday morning, about 7a.m, the husband, Bob Maggiacomo, goes down to the corner bodega to check his numbers. He did it the past Sunday, and did not even win one dollar.

Then he takes a closer looks at the winning numbers, and he thinks them the same numbers his wife plays every week for 30 years. So he goes and wakes up his wife, Eleanor Canavan. Not even a hyphenated Maggiacomo-Canavan but plain old Canavan. No respect no more!

His wife plays a combination of their birthdays, and they look at the internet, and what do you know, they won! Well since it was Easter and all they had to wait till Tuesday. They signed the ticket and left it right there o the dresser in full sight. Now that’s not smart. If someone breaks in and finds such a rare artifact, and sign it they gotta dig a hole again or give him a third of the share.

I guess Shaquan, Vinny Ungats or Chivalos weren’t working that day because nobody stole it. They got the check on Tuesday, and are thinking of going to Nino’s for the sauce and linguine with 40 neighborhood friends. They said they plan to move to Bensonhurst in Brooklyn and live there retired.

So the moral of the story is, that you have to play to win! I play only at Millionaire Casino and win big. They use Vegas Technology, accept Americans and is one the most trusted names in the industry. They have a special promotion today, so go look, it hits the spot.

Unemployed Woman Hits $1.2 Million Progressive Jackpot

Mar 11, 2011
casino jackpot win

One lucky 57 year old woman is beginning her new life as a millionaire after winning a $1.2 million progressive slot jackpot at an Indian Reservation casino in Hogansburg, New York.

The woman, Ms. Matti Breault, decided to enjoy a night out after finalizing her divorce and losing her job a few months earlier. The casino was offering a $2000 prize giveaway, and she was hoping her luck improved and she might win a few hundred dollars to help with the bills.

When the slot machine she was playing began to loudly make noises she never heard before, she thought that she won the $2000 giveaway prize.

A nearby player told her that she hit the big one as Ms. Breault explained herself – “This lady over here is saying, ‘You won the mega million.’ And I’m saying, ‘Nope, not me. There’s something wrong with the machine. I came home and I fell asleep on the couch for about two hours and I woke up thinking oh my God, what a dream, unbelievable, you know? Then I looked over and saw the check and I started crying all over again.”

This win could not have come at a more fortunate time for the lucky winner, as she’s been having a tough patch in life over the past few years. The bank foreclosed on her house, she lost a sister to cancer, a brother and a sister-in-law died in a tragic snowmobile accident and her mother passed away a year earlier. Bad luck seemed to follow her no matter where she went.

The cheating husband and the lost job were the least of her worries.

The $800,000 (after taxes) should completely change her life 180 degrees, and her x-husband has already called, to make sure he will be a part of that change.

Bail set for online gambling kingpin Nicodemo Scarfo

May 26, 2010
Dice Kingpin

Nicodemo Scarfo, a man with alleged ties to the New York-based Lucchese crime family, was detained from his home Friday and taken into custody on charges of racketeering, money laundering, and gambling. Scarfo allegedly had ties with an illegal bookmaking ring that processed billions of dollars in bets through an online gambling site to a wire room in Costa Rica. His bail has been set, and his attorney expects he will be released soon.

The Philadelphia Inquirer: Scarfo’s bail set at $350,000 in betting operation

Nicodemo Scarfo says he is an unemployed research analyst who did legal consulting work for attorneys. New Jersey state prosecutors paint a different picture, saying he is an organized crime involved in a $2 billion illegal online sports betting operation.

Theses contrasting biographies were drafted during yesterday’s bail hearing in Morris County Superior Court before Judge Thomas Manahan, where bail was set at $350,000.

Scafro is a reputed member of the Lucchese crime family. He faces charges of racketeering, conspiracy, money-laundering and illegal gambling, all stemming from his alleged involvement in an online sports betting operation that funneled bets through a wire room in Costa Rica. Scarfo is just one of 34 reputed associates of the Lucchese family charged in the case.

Authorities watched the gambling ring for more than a year, in a probe they called “Operation Heat”.
During the probe, they collected hundreds of secretly recorded conversations on wiretaps and other electronic listening devices.

NBC: Reputed former crime boss from Ventnor indicted by grand jury

The New Jersey State Attorney General’s Office has announced that a grand jury indicted Nicodemo Scarfo Jr., 44, along with more than 30 other people with alleged ties to the New York-based Lucchese crime family.

Scarfo, said to be the head of the the New Jersey faction of the family, faces racketeering, conspiracy and gambling charges.

The indictment is the result of a long-term investigation called Operation Heat aimed at uncovering an international criminal gambling ring that dealt with several billion dollars in sports wagers over the internet.

According to records from the investigation, the gambling ring processed an estimated $2.2 billion in wagers in just over a year using a password-protected website that funneled bets to Costa Rica.

Attorney General Paula T. Dow said, “The Lucchese crime family allegedly employed sophisticated measures such as electronic record-keeping and offshore wire rooms designed to thwart detection of their illegal gambling activities by law enforcement.”

“I’m proud to say that their innovations did not stop our investigators from infiltrating their criminal enterprise and obtaining the evidence needed to indict their alleged top leaders in both New York and New Jersey.”

Press of Atlantic City: Bail on mob-related charges set for Nicodemo S. Scarfo

Nicodemo S. Scarfo, son of a former Atlantic City crime boss, may soon be released prison after his bail was set on Tuesday.

Superior Court Judge Thomas V. Manahan set his bail at $350,000 shortly after Scarfo was arrested last week on racketeering charges.

Scarfo, 44, was detained from his home on Friday after authorities announced his indictment relating to an illegal internet bookmaking operation.

Sarfo’s attorney James Leonard called the scenario a “trumped-up book-making case” and expects his client to be released on bail soon.

PETA Wants Anti-Gambling Investigation for Mike Tyson Pigeon Racing Show

Mar 22, 2010
Mike Tyson pigeon race

Animal rights group PETA has its feathers fluffed about an upcoming Animal Planet TV show about pigeon racing. The show is to be hosted by boxing champ Mike Tyson, and will follow him as he pits his pet pigeons against professional racing birds. PETA says the show is cruel to animals, and is worried that it will promote illegal gambling.

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney): PETA alleges illegal gambling on Mike Tyson’s pigeon racing TV reality show

Mike Tyson has a new “pigeon racing” reality TV show in the works, but before the show has even gone on the air, it is already under investigation over accusations of illegal gambling.

The retired champion boxer is a life-long pigeon lover. His new show, called Take on Tyson, is scheduled to air on Animal Planet. It is a show about bird racing, and it pits Tyson and his trained birds against the best racing pigeons in New York.

The animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is displeased. They are accusing the show of violating New York gambling laws, because the show stands to profit from animal racing.

The District Attorney in Brooklyn (where the show is filmed) is investigating PETA’s claims. Animal Planet has claimed that there would be no gambling on the show, but a representative for PETA retorted by pointing out that making any money (including Tyson’s salary) off animal racing is clearly illegal.

USA Today: PETA feathers ruffled by Mike Tyson NY pigeon show

An animal welfare group is asking New York City prosecutors to investigate boxing star Mike Tyson’s upcoming reality tv show about pigeon racing.

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) argues that the show, which has yet to air, is cruel to animals. They also argue that races are likely to involve or promote illegal gambling.

The new show, which is expected to air next year on Animal Planet, will follow Tyson as he competes in pigeon races across New York. The former world heavyweight champion has raised pigeons all his life, but is not experienced racing them.

PETA sent a letter on March 18 to the Brooklyn district attorney’s office requesting that an investigation be opened. Jonah Bruno, district attorney spokesman, says they are looking into the matter.

NY Daily News: PETA fights to put a stop on Mike Tyson’s new Animal Planet reality show featuring pigeon racing

Animal rights activists are upset about boxing champ Mike Tyson’s plans to host a reality TV show about “the intensely competitive and bizarrely fascinating world of pigeon racing.”

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) wants New York prosecutors to shut down the new Animal Planet show, “Taking on Tyson,” which will show Tyson racing his birds against other New York pigeons. PETA says the show exploits pigeons and glorifies an abusive sport.

The show might also run into trouble with New York’s anti-gambling laws.

“Pigeon racing as an industry involves gambling. That’s why people do it, to make money,” said PETA general counsel Jeffrey Kerr.

PETA thinks it is likely that wagers would be made over the outcome of races featured on the show.

He insisted District Attorney Charles Hynes should probe the Brooklyn-based show and “make sure the production is not allowed to go forward if illegal activity is going to take place.”

Jonah Bruno, a spokesman for the Brooklyn District Attorney’s offer, said that they received PETA’s complaint and are looking into the matter.

Tyson claims to have raised pigeons all his life, but he never raced them competitively before.

“We love these birds,” Tyson said. “It feels good returning to the rooftops of the city where it all started for me.”
