A lucky area resident cashed in a winning $412,500 state lottery ticket that was sold at a Connecticut convenience store.

On Friday, Sept. 17, in New Haven County, a Wallingford resident cashed in a "CHROME" scratcher that was sold at the Corner Shoppe on Church Street in Wallingford.

According to CT Lottery, “when a winning scratch ticket is validated through a Lottery Retailer's terminal, the remaining number of unclaimed prizes for that prize level is automatically updated reflecting one less prize. Until the individual or group presents their winning ticket for claim at CT Lottery Headquarters, the identity of a winner is unknown.”

The Wallingford resident wasn't the only one feeling lucky; other recent winners of prizes topping $10,000, according to CT Lotto include:
