It’s Winner Wednesday and turns out, it’s not only a win for lottery players, but it’s a win for lottery retailers like the Patels.
Dushyantkumer and Nila Patel own Dublo’s Carry Out at 6 Madison Avenue in Norwalk. They have been selling for three years and Monday, Sept.19, turned out to be another lucky day. Dublo’s Carry Out sold a top prize-winning Lucky for Life ticket. It’s Ohio’s third big winner in this game since Ohio joined the multi-state game in November 2015. The winner receives $1,000 a day for life. The seller (the Patels) receives $57,500, the bonus that goes with selling a top prize-winning ticket. Dee said he was feeling pretty lucky when Lottery officials presented him with his souvenir check the next day. He had already sold a winning Rolling Cash 5 ticket last week and received a $500 agent bonus for that big winner, but he was a little more excited when he discovered that this bonus was bigger.

The Norwalk Reflector put him on the front page of today’s paper. He also made the paper last week when he sold the $130,000 Rolling Cash 5 ticket.
Nila, his wife, said he is a good retailer because he is always asking for the sale. Dee says he doesn’t like giving change back so he asks his customers if they want to buy lottery products. Dee says he’s feeling pretty lucky and can’t wait to sell the next big jackpot winning ticket.
Circle K in Carrollton got in on the winning too. They sold a Rolling Cash 5 prize on September 2. That ticket was worth$130,000.
Brian Rosenkranz of Amherst won $107,511 in the September 17, Rolling Cash 5 game. He purchased the winning ticket from Junction Beverage & Dr Thru located at 1111 Milan Avenue in Amherst. The retailer receives a $500 agent bonus for selling top prize-winning Rolling Cash 5 ticket.
