DeCosta won the jackpot when number 10 popped up. Another finalist, Steven Roberts of Gorham, is not shown. The four were eligible after each previously won $250,000 with a scratch ticket. “I was blessed to win the quarter of a million,” said Connelly, who carries an Irish Rosary with him daily. He bought his ticket at Tommy’s Variety in Naples. Photo by Robert Lowell
