At least one Connecticut resident is feeling lucky after cashing in a CT Lottery ticket worth more than a million dollars.

Wallingford resident Michael Tiscia cashed in a winning “Mega Million” lottery ticket sold at the Woodhouse Mart on Woodhouse Avenue in Wallingford that was worth a grand prize of $1,000,002 on Wednesday, Oct. 6.

Tiscia wasn’t the only lucky lotto player this week, with three $333,333 winning “Powerball” tickets that were all sold at Scott’s Village Mobil on Farmington Avenue in Farmington.

Those lucky winners were Pascual Martinez, of Farmington, Dennis Baerny, of Harwinton, and Wayne Bartolucci, of Avon.

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.”

Other recent winners of prizes topping $10,000, according to CT Lotto include:
