Quick, dig out those Lotto tickets because one lucky person who purchased one in Fairfield County won a cool $25.8 million in the Friday, Nov. 1 drawing.

The lucky ticket, with the winning numbers of 1-9-10-15-41-43, was sold at the Stop & Shop in Danbury, said the Connecticut Lottery.

The winner, who has not come forward, was the only jackpot winner out of 46,041 winning tickets sold for the drawing, lottery officials said.

The winner, who purchased the ticket at the store at 44 Lake Avenue Ext., in Danbury, can take a lump-sum payout of $21.3 million or 21 annual payments.

For its part in selling the winning ticket, the Stop & Shop will receive a $10,000 retailer commission, which they have reportedly said they plan to donate to a local charity.

“We’re ecstatic that we have a Lotto jackpot winner in Connecticut’s game,” said Lottery President and CEO Greg Smith. “This will certainly be life-changing for someone. We can’t wait to congratulate the winner in person."

Players have 180 calendar days, or until April 29, 2020, to claim their prizes.

Tickets can be checked online at CTLOTTERY.ORG, by scanning in a lottery Ticket Checker, or at any lottery retailer location.

The overall odds of winning a Lotto prize are 1 in 39.3. Odds of winning the jackpot are approximately 1 in 7.1 million.
