Man who sells lottery tickets won sixteen times in 2 years
A Bronx businessman who has won more big lottery jackpots than any other New Yorker doesn’t have to go far to buy tickets — he owns a store that sells them. Armand Paganelli scored an astounding 16 winning tickets in 2013 and 2014, amassing a tidy $625,000 in jackpots. One was $250,000; the others were $25,000 apiece. The winning ducats were all bought at the drugstore Paganelli owns with his brothers — Mt. Carmel Pharmacy on East 187th Street.
