SPARTA, NJ – While games are won every day at Sparta Lanes, they had a different kind of winner on Friday, August 21.  A local resident, wishing to remain anonymous, purchased a winning Triple 7’s lottery ticket.  The person waited until Saturday to scratch the ticket, revealing a $10,000 payout. 

Melissa Prestipino, a co-owner of the local bowling alley said, “We have been selling lottery tickets for three years and never had anyone win more than $1,000.”
