NEVADA MAN WINS $300,000 AT GROCERY STORE

A Nevada man got more than milk and bread at the grocery store after buying two “$300,000 Casino Nights” tickets and winning a $300,000 top prize.   Leslie “Les” Rolando, 60, said his only plans for the windfall are to put it in a savings account.

“I always play the $10 tickets,” he said.   “It (the winner) was the second ticket.”

Rolando, who retired in Nevada last June after living in Dallas, Texas, purchased the winning ticket on May 11 at Ramey Supermarket, 500 E. Cherry St. in Nevada.

“$300,000 Casino Nights,” a $10 Scratchers game, officially went on sale Jan. 11, 2003.
